Subject: using sourdough culture in brew
Date: 1992-04-10 17:13:00 GMT

Okay, someone tell me if this is sick or something. A friend of mine
(actually, the great Oz of the exploding carboy) has a sourdough
culture that he's had in the fridge for about 4 years. He just scoops
out what he needs whenever he wants to do a loaf of sourdough bread.
The stuff is pretty scary looking, in fact if you stare at it long
enough it starts to breathe. Anyway, I was thinking about doing
a small batch (~1g) of ale and throwing in a handful of the sourdough
stuff to try to make some sort of bizarre lambic.

So what do you think? Should I have my brewing toys taken away from
me? Am I onto something great? Will it grow hair on my tongue?
Will it make me a REAL HOMEBREWER? I saw someone on r.c.b mention the
idea today, so at least I'm not alone...
