The usual timeframe.

One of the local breweries just released their Gueuze today. Going to pick up a couple after work and use the dregs when I brew along with some other bottle dregs I gather in the next month. This brewery does use spontaneous fermentation for their sours so it will be interesting to add some local bugs to the mix.

I'm pretty sure you are talking about Rivertown. I've got a friend in cincy hopefully picking me up some bottles. Looking forward to this one.

Yep. That's the one. I know they release several sours a year and I've heard they're really good but I haven't had any of them yet. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

Word to the wise. If you plan on cellaring any of them when you get them, make sure they don't leak. Both bottles I got had slightly leaky caps that weren't seated very well. They were fantastic lambics, but I had planned on aging one and couldn't because of the leaks. I thought it was strange that they didn't cork these in addition to capping.

I've got another question. I made a small starter for some bottle dregs I saved up just to make sure they had good activity. 1.025 OG, 500ml, 4 bottles worth of dregs. I had it on a stir plate for 2 days and one day off the plate, all at room temp. It has developed a pellicle in that time that I noticed this evening. I plan on brewing Wednesday and was going to pitch this starter along with a wyeast lambic blend smack pack.

But since it has the pellicle, should I cold crash and decant it, pitch the whole thing, mix the pellicle back into the starter then cold crash and decant before pitching?
