I made a vomit beer earlier this year. Bummer to dump a batch- mine had a massive pellicle on top of the potent vomit smell and taste (I had to for science). Bigger bummer I needed its cake and...

That's the ticket right there. You could even use the dry extract that came with the kit (EDIT: that's probably what mhurst meant.. i'm a little tipsy) since you probably won't be able to get that...

Are you certain it's fungus? What does it look like? Fungus wouldn't be broken down during bottle conditioning so you would be able to see evidence of it regardless of timeframe.

I would just pitch Roselare alone. Maybe I'll do a small 2 gallon batch as a starter and make the rest a day or two later and pitch my "starter". The alcohol is going to impair the lacto/ pedio maybe...

Flanders Brown

Wanting to try my hand at a sour and I figured this would be a nice first attempt style.

It's called a hops/ sleep pillow and it will definitely give you hoppy dreams- unless you have allergies like mine.... then I wouldn't advise it. Lavender and chamomile work good also.

I compared with my friend and it seems I get several more brews per propane tank through the Blich than he does with his turkey burner. Eventually it will even out price-wise.

Using the raw ingredients that go into a cake mix may be slightly more authentic than a prepared mix IMHO. :D
