i've brewed various styles of ales from wheats to nut browns and india pale ales, the other night i was enjoying a frambrois and thought i might try to recreate the brew by saving the yeast. my logic tells me to save a few more bottles and try to multiply the yeast by adding to a light malt mixture. my question is, how do i assure the remaining yeast in the bottles is viable?...or do you think this is project will be too much for me tot handle, i am familiar with sterile working techniques (agar work) because of experience with edible mushroom cultivation, any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
shawn

Edible mushroom cultivation? I don't wanna know....haha.

As for the yeast, you'll be fine. I started playing with yeast when I was on my first all-grain brew, and I did fine.

Only problem would be if lindemans uses different yeast for bottling their frambois, I don't remember.

lindemans is pasteurized, if it wasnt it wouldnt be that sweet

however the cuvee rene is not, although they arent in the same ballpark, best bet to clone lindemans is to make a low IBU wheat beer, add fruit of you choice, then mix in some lactic acid to taste at bottling

there's really not much in the lindemans framboise to capture and propogate. review this thread from the burgundian babble belt, it's a great sour beer website that really delves into the details:
http://www.babblebelt.com/newboard/t...=2&tpg=1&add=1

the whole website is very helpful if you're seeking info on sours in the future.

Check out my thread titled "an authentic gueze recipe." There's a variation for framboise in there.

And yeah, the yeast is dead.
