Quick question on the yeast/bugs for this brew.

If I did the initial fermentation with WLP550 (or another Belgian style yeast), and then added the dregs of 2 Orval bottles, will that give me Lambic/Sour character alone? I have not ever drank an Orval and couldn't really tell from the internet whether or not it was a Sour beer or not. I picked up the bottles, but I'm saving them for when I'm ready to pitch the dregs...

Also, what are your thoughts on using Saison yeast for the initial fermentation? I have a carboy full of saison that's about ready to keg, but I don't have another saison planned for sometime. It would be a shame to just dump the yeast if I was able to re-use it in this beer. I already bought the grains and hops for this - just need some advice on the yeast/bugs...

thanks in advance....

I'm thinking of using saison once to see, and Orval adds brett at bottling so the funk is there

No, Orval isn't sour. It only contains brettanomyces, which will give a slight tartness at best.

I finally did this the way I originally intended...BIG

The brewhouse eff. was 82%
Batch 9.5 gallons
Boil 13 gallons
10 lbs Pilsner
8 lbs 2-row
4 lbs Sugar

.75 oz Northern Brewer(10.6aau) @60
.5 each Saaz and Strian Goldings @ 20 and 10
pitched directly onto WLP 650
7-10 days primary
added 2lbs mango per gallon(should take the gravity up to 1.091)(you can use less if you cook the mango first, I've since learned)
Wait until gravity settles, usually near 1.000, crash, bottle and age a few months
This is GREAT at 4 months and does not taste like 12%

This sounds really interesting. Thank you for sharing, I may give this a go in the Fall but with some Love Child No.4 cultures.
