Do you still have any noticeable sweetness? Because of your mash temp you might be dealing with a healthy amount of medium length proteins and dextrins.

Tastes fairly dry surprisingly. I checked it again today and it's showing signs of fermentation again so I'll wait and check in a couple weeks and see where it's going.

Checked again today. Gravity is 1.019, so it has went down considerably. Smell has some metallic-ness to it and something else I can't place my finger on. Definitely no cherry pie! But I used white labs not wyeast. I'll check it in a month and see if the gravity changes anymore.

I took another gravity today. It's at 1.016 today. Would bottling at this point be crazy? Slight metallic still present but more smoke noticeable, like a cigarette kinda in aftertaste.

Does it taste like you want to drink it? Doesn't sound like it from that description.

At first, no. But it kinda grew on me and I begin picking out other aromas and flavors.

I did a pale ale with Brett T at 60F and had a metallic taste, too...

I probably wouldn't bottle your Brett beer at that gravity. All my Brett beers (10+) have finished under 1.010
