Are the Lips of Faith series from New Belgian pasteurized? Looking to harvest some wild yeasties for my La Folie clone.

Yup, the new bottles of them are pasteurized, the ones that are bottle capped. But if you can find an old bottle that is corked and caged you can harvest dregs from them easily.

Currently they are pasteurized.

From what I understand, the corked and caged bottles were all done by hand in order to prevent contamination of their bottling line. In order to ramp up production of La Folie for national distribution (necessitating bottling via the bottling line) they had to start pasteurizing to prevent contamination in all of their other beers.

However, I spoke with Lauren Salazar a few months back and she said that a seperate bottling line for beers with bugs is in their immediate future, so we should start to see unpasteurized La Folie sooner than later.

In theory...however, the last corked and caged La Folie's were bottled several years back now. I tried to culture some last year and it didn't have much success.

There was a rumor sometime last year that NB was going to go back to unpasteurized C&C bottles, but i haven't heard anything about it recently.
