E-1, B-5, b-5, e-1  1/5/5/1 Open E Shane Speal did a write up on the Dirty E tuning awhile back.

The EBEG#    open E that Richard Dean describes is a great sounding tuning.  I use it some.  It plays (chords/picks) like my most fave 4 string open G GDGB. 

I can't find it either.

Well the 4 lowest strings in a 6 string set E/A/D/G would work. You could tune those to E/B/E/B or E/B/E/G.

Or use the 4 highest strings D/G/B/E and tune to E/B/B/E or E/G/B/E.

O chose to use the four big strings from a set of six.  I used electric guitar strings.
