Default Lactobacillus

We recently put my new daughter on a digestive supplement and when looking at the ingredients I was shocked to see that it was lactobacillus.

So, if anyone wants to make a sour beer or wants to do a purposefully infected beer you can go grab some biogyle from your local pharmacy.

I'm convinced that the predominant bacteria in my mouth is also lactobacillus (considering that it is a fairly common oral flora). Any time I eat anything sugary my mouth goes all lactic-sour within minutes. My wife OTOH doesn't seem to have that issue.

If I wanted to go really cheap and make a sour beer, I could just spit in it

You are probably doing the right thing when you use the supplement. Another way to get some of needed bacteria is to use fermented/pickled products like sour kraut.

Homemade sour kraut is more tolerable than preserved product. Specific fermented foods are good for restoring gut health.

Another culprit is a high gluten diet. I wish you and your family well. Maybe you could brew your daughter a sour non alcoholic beer Gluten free of course!

I get that too, makes a lot of sense. Thanks for my daily 'ah-hah' moment.

Lactobacillus is a very common bacteria in and on our bodies (mouths, digestive systems, various orifices and parts--ever open a beer that smelled vaguely--and disturbingly--"familiar"?). It's also very common in supplements and meds. A friend was placed on medicine for his blood sugar and the main active ingredient was lactobacillus.

The best way to "culture" lactobacillus is to make a delicious batch of sour kraut. All you need is salt, cabbage and time. Maybe some extra water if the cabbage is a little older. I have about 12 qts still from last summer.

I have made sauerkraut for a lot longer than I have made beer and never really knew what did the fermenting in it. That's good to know!

Sauer Kraut Berlinner Weisse anyone?

The anti gluten crowd in this country is hilarious.
