Subject: Source of bugs for lambic brewing
Date: 1992-04-01 14:42:57 GMT

In "Lambic", Guinard lists three organisms that are important for the
authentic lambic brewing process:

Tegenaria parietina

Lepthyphantes leprosus, and

Pholcus phalangoides

I have been searching my homebrew suppliers, but none have been able to
provide me with these bugs. One guy suggested I obtain them from
environmental sources, but I'm not sure I'm equipped to culture them
myself. I would appreciate helpful suggestions about sources for these
organisms, and their maintenance.
