Liefmans Goudenband
Hi all,

I am interested in having a go at a old brown in the vein of Goudenband, and wondered if anyone has tried reculturing the yeast from the bottle of this brew.

Cheers

Sinkas,

I just opened a bottle from 2005 to reculture, but I don't expect much, maybe some lactobacillus - I have not been able to acquire any fresh bottles for a long time here.

After drinking the 05 Goudenband, it didn't display any wild yeast complexity, rather a mild lactic brown ale. Unless a very fresh bottle is found or on draft, the primary yeast will be difficult to reculture.

Re: Liefmans Goudenband
It mentions in WB's how it's now "sweetened" which leads me to believe it's most likely pastuerized these days (or at least until they stopped making it whenever the place closed)

They've been around the Philly area for awhile, though I can't say I've tried one in a long time. Hopefully Moortgat does well for these beers, they used to be really great...

Re: Liefmans Goudenband
That's probably a "best by" date of Nov. 2016. Are the liefman's always brewed 10 years before the best by date?
