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!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Can you mark me down? I can distribute to Seanywonton (or you could send to him since you have his address) and other PDXers.

I'm about to start a solera sour barrel with a friend and this would be the perfect thing to get it going. Count me in if you still have slots.

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
My colleagues and I have been following the "bug farm" posts for some time and are avid enthusiasts. I'm the VP for CASK - Cowford Ale Sharing Klub here in Jacksonville, Fl. and have 150 or so active members. If you are wondering, Jax. is the black hole for all things sour. With the exception of Duchesse, Orval, and an occasional Jolly Pumpkin, anything sour is 8 to 10 hours away.

Not to digress, but a few of my club members and I are about to set off on a, hopefully, never ending plambic project. The brewing, fermenting/inoculation, distribution schedule is as follows:

Brew Initial PLambic #1 - 50 gal.

Six Months Later: - Brew PLambic #2 - 50 gal.

Six Months Later - Brew PLambic #3 - 50 gal / Blend Distribute 70% #1, 30% #2

Six Months Later - Brew PLambic #4 - 50 gal / Blend Distribute 30% #1, 40% #2, 30% #3

Six Months Later - Brew PLambic #5 - 50 gal / Blend Distribute 30% #2, 40% #3, 30% #4

...and on, and on, and on...50 gallons distributed every six months! Brewers can continue to age or fruit as desired.

Due to the absence of commercial examples, we were going to order direct from Belgium, have a tasting party and culture up the dregs for each barrel.

After seeing this post, my colleagues suggested I throw myself at the feet of Al Benevolent and humbly beg for the fantastic array of critters listed above. The benefit would obviously be your inclusion in the distribution of the blends. It might make for an interesting vertical tasting after a few years.

If I have destroyed this thread, my apologies.

"Yeah Smellysell,

Awesome Al! I have ~100# of fresh MT raw wheat that I've been looking for a use for, guess I found it!

Should I just email you my address?

Al, long time lurker. Got a 6 month batch of Flanders red working. Looking to start a new batch. Would appreciate getting on the list. Love to send you a few sour goodies from California. I will send email to you. Thanks.

Al,

Of course I'd love to get some of the current batch. Plenty of good stuff out here in trade for your efforts. Cheers. New address though. I'll shoot you an email.

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
Thats a serious undertaking in Jax .... I am compelled to send what you need to get started. It'll be interesting to compare what you culture (and perhaps sending some of the culture to me, I can identify what you have as well as, using the bugs for future use).....coming straight in from Belgium, they should be relatively fresh dregs. Send me a list what you intend to culture.

Hello, Al! Wow. so excited. This would be perfect timing for my next round of projects, since I started working with the critters a year ago December. Just, wow!

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
"...send me a list what you intend to culture."

Our initial tasting party list included:

Boon Oude Gueuze

Gueuze Cantillion

Gueuze Cuvee Rene

Fantome

Belle Vue Gueuze

Hanssens Oude Gueuze

De Cam Oude Gueuze

There were a few more that I can't seem to recollect or find. Recommendations are certainly appreciated as well.

I think that, regardless, a straight-from-Belgium tasting party is in order but our preference would be to initially inoculate with the "bug farm" beasties if possible. We'd be happy to send you a few of the above or other for your trouble. You could always take a trip down for the tasting party. Isn't it starting to cool off up there? It's still pretty warm down here...

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
I do recommend De Cam despite the price it may command. One other would be Mort Subite Oude Gueuze - very dry and nice.

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
I've been lurking here for awhile, trying to gleen as much info possible before attempting my first wild brew. I'd love to get in on this bugfarm, but being a novice (and extract) brewer, I'm not sure if I'm worthy. I don't want to take away from those that are more versed in the wild arts, especially as this will be quite the long term experiment for me.

Re: a new BugFarm is upon us........
I'd also love to get in on this if the list isn't already too long. We're moving to a new house in mid-December, so there's no rush. Bugfarm III looks interesting and wonderful though. Thanks!

(PS. If and when you're ready for me say the word and I'll send along a contact email.)

Helio & others -

Once I prep as many vials as I can, I'll post for availability, addresses, etc. I may need to extend into the 2nd week of Dec. (TBD)

I'm going to still try to design each vial for a 5 gal pitch.
