Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

pLambic
I am planning on brewing a plambic. I am in the process of culturing the dregs from a bottle of Cantillon Vigneronne. My plan is too innoculate with the starter and supplement with a Belgian ale yeast. I also have WLP645 (clausenii) and WLP653 (lambicus) Should I supplement with either of these?

I have read most of the lambic posts on this board but would appreciate any other suggestions for a first timer? Thanks.

Re: pLambic
JJ,

I have had good results keeping things simple. 60% Pils 40% wheat. primary with a neutral yeast like WY1056, and then pitching WY Lambic blend when primary slows. This is a fairly common and well known method that produces a nice lambic within a year.

Other posters here do "supplement" their lambics with various dregs, bretts, and other bugs and get great results. Still, for a good first attempt keeping things simple is a smart place to start. Good luck.
