Default Bug Farm 5

I just started fermenting a lambic style beer with Al B's Bug Farm 5. Was wondering if anyone knew what was in this blend? I know it changes each time, but was interested to see whats in it.

Why don't you ask Al B? Here is his facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/pages/East-C...68646113149281

He is also available on http://www.babblebelt.com/ which is where many others have used his blends. Unfortunately I have not got to try any yet.

Wow, thanks for that list. Had considered adding dregs, but that list is already a veritable whose who of organisms. Would have asked him, but do not have facebook. Already spend too much time on this site. Don't need another distraction.

I put some in a Belgian Dark Strong about 3 months ago. Time for a sample I suppose. Thanks for reminding me!

Sure no problem. Long story short, half the 11 gallon batch got BugFarm 5 and the other half got a vial of Brett B & L. I'll post something when I taste them.

Wow, I'd be tasting that. Vinnie Cilurzo starts with a BDSA to create Consecration.

I have a bottle of this waiting to be used. My patio redo is killing me! Must work on and finish patio so I can brew up many beers very soon.
