Dreg Series: Little Bitch

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: Farmers Bitch Flanders Red

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

Farmers Bitch a Flanders Red gallon project

I started the 1st Flanders Red named Farmers Daughter back in November with Danny at DeeperRoots Brewing.  My 1st dreg project was from that batch.  It changed the way I look at sour beers and brewing in general.  It turned out great, unfortunately, I only have 1 bottle left. 

I am going to toss in some oak after about a month of fermentation for some added complexity.
