Dreg Series: Baby Solidarity/Russian River

This is a continuing series on harvesting yeast from production beers.  The focus of this is to collect, grow and ferment a beer with these Brett or wild yeast strains.  The majority of the wort for this experiment is collected by brewing 7 gallons instead of the typical 6 during a normal Homebrew session.  Each of these post will develop slowly as the Brett/Funk matures over time.

Base Recipe: Solidarity Black Mild

Production Beer Harvested (Dregs): Russian River Supplication and The Bruery Oude Tart blended 50/50.

Russian River Supplication

This beer could be interesting.  The very complex malt bill might play havoc on the sour yeast blend from the 2 blended additions.  This beer took off in the fermentation chamber and had a good amount of activity with-in 24 hours.
