One thing that I didn't see called out here was a pic of a label on one of the pinot wine barrels from the Chow video. It's lists:
25# dried sour cherries
.33 gallons Brett (B & L)
In another post, we've seen that they use 60g barrels. So taking this down to a 5g batch and assuming this rate is the same (or close) for all barrels we get:
Dried Sour Cherries - .4166 #s/gal = 2.08#s (aka 33.33 oz) per 5g batch
Brett (Brux & Lamb) - .0055 gal (pitch)/gal (wort) = .0275 g (aka .1 L or .44 cups) per 5g batch
That pitch rate seems somewhat low to me but then again I have no sense of proper pitching rates for bugs.
