Does anyone know what is in 9097? Sounds like a standard yeast and some Brett, but what yeast, and what Brett, and is there anything else?
I've seen references to it having Claussenii, and others to it having Lambicus
I want to try a Sour beer, and this looks like a way to start, but I would like to know what I am using. The alternative is to use one of my yeasts and add a Brett strain a couple of weeks later. Was thinking of using Bruxellensis, since it seems to be "Medium" intensity; seems reasonable to start in the middle.
I assume general rules are (if there are any rules):
Mash high, low IBUs, and wait a long time.
Some general questions about using Brett:
It likes acidic worts; would adding some acid malt be helpful?
Any advantages/differences to the Brett character if you have a low or high SG wort?
Does the Brett like to be fed, or should all the fermentables be in the original wort?
