    I am helping a buddy brew an extract Berliner weisse:
    3lb 60% wheat / 40% malt extract
    1oz hallertau @ 15 mins
    US-05 safe ale yeast - primary
    Lacto culture - secondary

    My question is since this is an extract recipe, is there gong to be any food (dextrins?) for the bugs to eat after the sach has run it's course?

    Of course. Probably more.
