Bugs In Beer?

Lactobacillus Delbrueckii
Lactobacillus delbrueckii

In a previous post I had mentioned using “bugs” in beer. That is not bugs as in “insects”, but other forms of yeast and bacteria rather than the normal brewers yeast. Beer is normally fermented with either a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ale yeast) or a strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus (lager yeast).
