Well I plan to be brewing a 10 gallon split batch of a lambic in the next few weeks. In the mean time I have been drinking a variety of lindemans and pitching the dregs into a mason jar along with a dreg from a bottle of Brux Beer. I then made up a starter wort of 1.030 and pitched the mason jar into the flask. I had it on the stir plate the first 2 days with no sign and with loose foil over the neck of the flask.

Yesterday I placed a airlock on top I started to notice a build up of sediment on the bottom and a white film on the surface. This morning I checked and there's a small krausen and bubbling away. My plan is to build this up and pitch it into one of my vessels either my old oak barrel or a carboy.

The only Lindemans that has viable dregs is the Cuvee Renee, have you added any dregs from one?

Unfortunately those are all bottle pasteurized so nothing will be growing from them.

The regular kriek does not, but the cuvee renee kriek does. Either way you still have Brett B in there with it.

looks good. In fact, it looks just like my brett c starter built up from oak cubes.
Good luck with it bro.
Btw, how does it smell? Have you tasted it?

Gave it a smell when I got home and it smells good. Nice and light sour smell, I kicked the starter plate on for a minute or two it got extremely active.
