Sounds like a good opportunity for a beer swap! Have you any sour homebrew?

I'd gladly trade some wild slurry for a few wild homebrews!

The current "house" mixed blend is going into a gallon starter today - the last step before pitching. It will have revived dregs from Jolly Pumpkin, Goose Island (Juliet), Boulevard (Love Child #2), Petrus, The Bruery (Oude Tart), and Upland (Gilgamesh). I might also throw in a touch of slurry from WLP670.

Ah well, I'll have plenty enough slurry to give away. Just send me a few bottles of the finished product whenever they're ready.

I'll DM you for a shipping address after the first pitch is ready.

nope. If you star san gets infected it's not going to work anyway. It's designed to kill just those bugs afterall.

Always good to have an extra set of plastic ware (thief, racking stuff, buckets, bungs, airlocks, etc) for sours/brett'd beers.

I use duct tape or red permanent marker to mark the "sour" equipment.

BTW - lambic is fermenting away in primary. I didn't have time for slurry, but I probably could send you a bottle of unfinished (but fairly attenuated) beer that you could pitch straight into a batch or grow a starter from.
