Default My attempt at a wild fermentation

I prepared 1.5L of a mild starter at 1.030 gravity. I placed three mason jars two outside and one inside by the window for approximately 12 hours, I also threw in some grain into one of the jars. I placed a cheese cloth over each one to keep bugs etc out.

This morning I dumped them all into a one gallon fermenter with an airlock. Hopefully I will get some decent wild yeast, seems like overall it's pretty hit or miss if people get lucky with this. After reading Brew Like a Monk though I had to give it a shot and thought after reading the other wild fermentation thread that this would be a better method then chancing a whole 3 or 5 gallon batch. If it doesn't work out, not a huge issue as I have some Abbey II that I can use for my next brew

Depending on the temperatures where you are,I would say you are quite likely to get lacto from the grains at least.

I captured some wild yeast - probably Brett C. - with the same method.
