Availability: One Time Only!

Milk The Funk Mega Blend Year 4!
The yearly Homebrew Con Milk The Funk Meet Up & Bottle Share is THE place to try some of best-made sour and funky homebrews. A wide array of spontaneous and cultivated house mixed-culture beer dregs went into this blend, ensuring this year’s release will be completely unique but just as complex as Baltifunk (2016), Funkapolis (2017) & Funklandia (2018).
Read more about the Milk The Funk Mega Blend in the July/August 2018 issue of Zymurgy, “The Place of Brewing: Going Wild with the Great Brettanomyces Megablend”.
This blend likely contains a unique collection of Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, among other random microbes contributed by Milk the Funk members.

Product Category: Dusty Bottoms Collection™
The Dusty Bottoms Collection™ is our ode to unique and hard to find cultures sourced from commercial fermentations. As much as we love local yeast, there are just some flavors and aromas that can’t be reproduced by plucking yeast out of thin air.
Many of these cultures have been used for generations to make some of the most consistently wonderful beverages in the world. Whether it’s brewer’s yeast, Brettanomyces, or Lactobacillus…these aren’t Local Yeast by our definition, but certainly were local at one time.
