I'm making an ESB. I have a yeast starter of WLP002. I also collected bottle dregs from Coniston Bluebird bitter. I want to get the nuances of the true English bitter style, but have more of the ESB style dominate.
From the bottle dregs, I created a starter and got it to grow. So I have a 1L yeast starter of WLP002 and maybe ¼- ½ a vial of the dregs. I want to add both to the primary, but thinking the WLP002 will run over the dregs. Options:
1) Add both see what happens
2) Add dregs first for 48 hours, see activity, then add WLP002
3) Add WLP002 to primary, once that slows down, add bottle dregs to secondary and rack over it
Of course this is experimental, curious about any suggestions. Thanks
