Bottle dregs >>>>> Yeast blends
yeah, this collection is headed for a bit of a mixed up experiment.
I am normally pretty good about keeping things simple in the brewery. Rarely are there more than three things in the grain bill and three hops.
This time around I've got 4 grains(2 row, munich, wheat malt, and rye flakes) but only two hops (pacific gem and Belgian Goldings)
However this time I also used three yeasts! and two of those were blends.
When I went to the LHBS to get some yeast a couple days before brew day they didn't have any saison yeast so nor, for that matter three vials of any yeast I wanted to use.
They did have 1 vial of the American Farmhouse Blend, 1 vial of the Belgian Ale Blend and one vial of Belgian Ale (can't remember the numbers right now).
Made starters out of each and mixed them all up to pitch.
5 gallons will get the bugs in a couple days.
The plan is to add some honey tomorrow then Thursday I will rack 5 gallons into a glass carboy and add the bugs. I hope there will be enough sugar left for them to get a good hold before it's all used up this way.
