Yes.

Just to reiterate what was said above, the fruit lindemans -- except the cuvee kriek -- are all pasteurized so there is no live brett or bacteria in the bottle. So all you really have in that starter is the brett brux. You won't get any lambic sourness just out of brett brux, you need the bacteria to produce sourness. I wouldn't want you to devote a year of aging to that beer expecting lambic and instead being disappointed you only have a brett beer.

You may want to try to find the lindemans cuve renee gueuze, which is not pasteurized. I've never seen the cuvee kriek but it's an option as well. I know Timmermans makes a gueuze, too, and it is not pasteurized. If you have access to American sours or other non-pasteurized Belgian sours those would help add other strains of brett and some bacteria to your starter. Jolly Pumpkin, Russian River, Cascade, etc.

You could also supplement with one of the blends from Wyeast, White Labs, or ECY if you can find it.

I do plan on getting bacteria from wyeast when I get the supplies. This is more or less a experiment for now . I plan to take the list of usable beer dregs when I goto a local specialty package store.

To reiterate, the fruit lindemans are pastuerized and don't have viable dregs. The exception to this, the cuvee renee kriek, is a pretty rare beer.

I see you're in CT. Some of the beers you want to look for for dregs are Allagash Confluence or Interlude, Ithaca White Gold, Green Flash Rayon Vert (brett only), Boon Oude Gueze, anything from Hannsen's, and of course the lindeman's cuvee renee gueze.
