I have a culture buying addiction!
I went to the Monk's Melee at the Hulmeville Inn yesterday. My friend and I popped over into Trenton and stopped at Princeton Homebrew. Lucky for me there were some ECY vials there. I picked up a strong scottish for my future wee heavy brew coming up soon.
The real interesting thing that I grabbed was the ECY20 culture called Bug Country The Mother Bugger. According to the ECY facebook page, here's the cast of characters. "ECY20 BugCounty - The mother bugger for sour ales. Contains ECY01, ECY02, ECY03, ECY04, and ECY05. Also includes: Brettanomyces lambicus, bruxellensis, anomulus, clausenii, custersianus, nanus, and naardenensis. Various Lactobacilli and Pediococci were added to round out this limited release sour blend for 2011."
I just don't know what to make with it! I'm psyched I got such a variety of organisms not offered anywhere else, I just need to brew up a nice dextrinous mash to toss this into I suppose!
