got a few bottles of Russian river (finally) and I know they use a champagne yeast to bottle most of their beers but I'm pretty sure I have heard that some of their beers are bottled with out. any idea which are bottled with out?

The Consecration, second from the left, is bottled with wine yeast.

Redemption and Damnation are not sour so they are probably bottled with whatever Belgian strain RR uses (550?).

Pretty sure you can go to the RR site and get the specific batch details for bottle conditioning. At least you used to be able to.

Supplication is a good source for bugs.

Somewhere, probably here or themadfermentationist I read Supplication is the one sour of theirs not bottled with wine yeast. I stepped it up and the smell and characteristics of the sacc was pure Belgian to me. I brewed a batch using only a starter from it, but it's still hiding from me in the basement 3 months in.

i made an excellent sour with beatification dregs, stepped them up to 3 liters and pitched the whole thing into a 5 gallon beer. fantastic beer.

I'm currently stepping up a starter made from RR Supplication /JP Oro De Calabaza dregs. there's quite a bit of yeast at the bottom of the flask. Definitely active, still waiting to see how much of it is bugs vs residual sacc
