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!

Reusing yeast
I an new to brewing sours, I have my first Lambic going and has been in the primary for about 3 months. I know Lambic's can be left on the primary for the most of the duration. I Fermented this with Al's Bug Farm and a neutral White Labs yeast. What I am wondering is when I rack it to secondary can I save or reuse the yeast for another sour? Either wash it for a future batch or use some of it right away for a new sour? Or is there autolysis from the neutral yeast that I shouldn't use it?

I do have some oak cubes in it to save to harbor some bugs, but I am not sure about the actual yeast

Yes you can save and reuse the yeast/dregs from another sour without any extra procedures.

Nope. That yeast is probably not much good now. The bugs have taken over.
