Default Brett Brux Trois Berliner Weiss

Has anybody tried a Berliner Weiss made using Brett Trois? Sour mash with Lacto for the sour, ferment with Brett Trois for the mango, passion fruit, pineapple?

Sounds like a fun/delicious beer, as long as your goal isn't to brew something that tastes like a classic Berliner.

I've got a berliner aging that had some Trois added to secondary after primary with Lacto and US-05. Should be time to bottle it soon.

I have a no boil Berliner sitting in a keg right now that I pitched the dregs of a Trois beer into. The beer tastes great, its dry and super tart (I used a handfull of grains for the Lacto instead of a commercial pitch) but the aroma is a bit off putting so I am hoping the trois cleans that up a little bit. I wont know for months but it has a nice pellicle on the surface at the moment.

I'm planning to do this exact thing next summer. I think 100% Trois would make for a delicious and unique Berliner. I was thinking I'd age half of it on some actual mango to see how insane I can push that character.

About a year ago I brewed a Berliner Weisse with 100% Brett B. It came out great, but it tasted pretty similar to commercial Berliners I've had; there was definitely nothing marking it as a Brett beer. I think I have one or two bottles of it left, I should probably drink one soon to see if it's developed any more funk with time. Trois is much more aromatic and flavorful than B, in my experience, so I think it's absolutely worth trying.

Ditto with oldsock. Bottled some Berliner Weisse that had Brett Trois / WLP644 added at bottling last week. The brett is going hard as a mofo. Lots of chunky bits in the brett bottles. Just smooth nothingness in the plain bottles. The lacto didn't sour it too much, but the beer was exceptionally enjoyable. I couldn't resist and drank one of the non brett bottles last night.

I used 1007 in primary. Huge fan of that yeast. Not the least bit fussy and very clean.

I'm planning something similar:

Simple Berliner-esque grain bill, light hopping,
Primary with pure Lacto (WLP) culture (two to four weeks)
Rack to Secondary with Brett brux 'Trois' (not sure... two months?)

A 100% brett beer will not produce much funk. That is more prominant when brett is used as a secondary yeast.

Right, I know. Just pointing out that doing so won't create a beer that tastes completely out of style.
