I tried "douching in" one time with a Strawberry Blonde. The batch was great when it was fresh, but it got super funky and barely drinkable a few weeks later.

Wow, autocorrect really failed me on this one! I was apparently "spathing" and "douching!"

Have you tried one of these yet?

How big was your combined starter?

I'm curious because my next brew is going to be a brett golden strong ale. I was planning on pitching a liter of Wyeast 1388 (Belgian strong) and a liter of a strain of Brett Brux that I got from a local brewery.

Let us know how yours ends up tasting.

Funny, I just saw a facebook post from Epic Brewing about Elder Brett...a "Saison-Brett Golden Ale"

I bet it turns out delicious! Brett is amazing stuff

It took quite a while to carb and isn't fully done. At first, it was intensely fruity with flavors reminiscent of Victory's Golden Monkey with a more pronounced soft malt background. I cracked a bottle the other night and the intense fruitiness has begun to subdue and there is a decisive tart character that I didn't expect. I'm going to let these age for quite some time as its evident that age is only making this beer better and better. To be honest, I think this beer is going to be remarkable in another few months.

As for a starter, I did a 1500 ml starter with one vial of Brett Trois and one vial of ECY09 together in a mixed primary.

Do you have any updates on this? I'm trying to research high gravity (ie strong belgian ales) with Brett. Would love to hear how this one turned out. Thanks!

This beer has been met with high marks from my Belgian loving friends. I will use this disclaimer: the Trois strain is INTENSELY fruity. So much so that, for my palate, that it distracts you from the beer. Obviously this is only my humble opinion as there are people clamoring to use the strain. I don't think Trois has enough "funk" to be used as a traditional Brett and its too fruity to use as a primary.
