if you fine and then add campden to the brett portion you really shouldnt have any problems, Ive done this now with a few lambics and Ive yet to experience a bottle bomb

The other reason I suggested blending, is that while dry hopping adds A LOT of aroma, it is a bit lacking in the flavor department, but maybe you could do a hop tea to add before bottling if you dont want to blend...

is there a temperature range you would suggest holding at once the brett B is added? the beer is going to be relatively hoppy to begin with and I plan on dry hopping with 1oz of chinook once the bretts are done, and I want a noticeable amount of funk, but not overwhelming

I was wondering how this came out, or what your progress has been so far. I am brewing an IIPA tomorrow, planning on throwing Brett in the secondary then dry-hopping at the end.

So I actually got sidetracked by other beers and forgot about this. I did something similar with a barleywine, but unfortunately thats still bulk aging so I don't know how it worked out. I'll hafta give this a go soon tho
