    Counting WLP400 cells

    Bottle dregs yeast harvest - success -Unibroue; Allagash

    While there appears to be some debate about the quality of Unibroue bottle fermented yeast dregs*, I had a successful fermentation using dregs from 4 or 5 bottles of their variety 6 pack (Maudite, Blanche, Trois Pistoles, Fin du Monde, others). While it did not end up with Belgian fruity...

    What would you do?

    The brewing co-op that I am a member of is doing a wort giveaway next weekend and I get to partake. They are giving away the boiled and cooled wort and it's up to us to finish it. I don't know what direction I want to go with this so I'm open to suggestions. My initial thought was to go away...
