I've tried looking for some resources on how to save microbes\bugs from brewing a batch of sour ale. It seems like there is a lot of effort involved in collecting different bottle dregs and gathering a great collection of microbes and it would seem like such a waste to dump it after bottling.

What's the best way to save wild bugs\microbes\brett from a sour beer after its all done? Is this even advisable?

Lots of good info in Mike's post and the subsequent comments/responses: http://www.themadfermentationist.com...-cultures.html
