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!

Hey Al can you culture this up?
LOL

"It seems that we have not only salvaged the oldest champagne in the world, but also the oldest still drinkable beer. The culture in the beer is still living."

I think that's how Flag Porter was made - from a shipwrecked bottle......

That's the story, at least.

"Brewed with 1825 yeast salvaged from a sunken vessel in the English Channel using an original 19th century recipe."

It's pretty nifty if it's true!

Re: Hey Al can you culture this up?
Rumors has it that brewery Stallhagen on the nearby island of Åland, (the island closest to the wreck), is evaluating the possibility to brew a copy of the beer, using the yeast (if it still is viable). There is however some concern, since a brewery in Sweden (Slottskällan) also tried brewing a revivalist beer from yeast salvaged from another wreck, containing wheatbeer from 1915, and had the yeast running amok in the brewery, contaminating other brews with its (funky) taste. The yeast cells, surviving being torpedoed during WWI and sitting 90 years at the bottom of the Baltic sea, were apparently not that easy to kill using normal cleaning routines in the brewery :)

Impressive how strong and resilient the wild nature of critters can be. I wish I could survive a torpedo attack and 90 years at the bottom of the Baltic Sea submerged in alcohol. Hmmmmm... Could this be a new comic book superhero? (Yeast man)
