Default ECY34 "Dirty Dozen"--now what?

So I stopped by Princeton Homebrew today and Joe was loaded with ECY34; AKA "Dirty Dozen." Pretty much every Brett in the ECY catalog in one vial...I just did my brett trails, but this vial may deserve something special. Anyone want to help me craft a brew?

I'm interested in peoples thoughts on what styles would be good with this blend as well. Pretty interesting stuff, maybe add with a sour mash for a fast pseudo lambic?

What sort of Brett beer would be appropriate, something golden lightly hopped or brett IPA style?

Hmm... Answered Joe's email too late today apparently? Sent an email 1 hr after and haven't heard back yet. Anyone want to send me a vial of this mix that I can prop up? I'm sure the resulting proportions would be off somewhat but I'd still be interested in trying it.

I can send some ECY Naardenensis, ECY Abbey, ECY Scottish Shilling, or ECY-03 in return!

I cracked it open and brett primed a couple of batches I bottled last weekend. Saving the rest for an upcoming batch. Initial impression on the Dirty Dozen is its definitely showing the Brett Lambicus side....a little funk'n'leather with cherry.

I think it might go well with a darker beer....

Are people using ECY 34 for both primary and secondary?

For primary - Anyone have any style/recipe ideas for ECY 34? How about a Flanders red base and lots of patience? Or do you think a saison/farmhouse beer would be better matched with this Brett blend? Would this need to be stepped up for a medium gravity 5G batch or is this good to go?

Thanks for any and all ideas/input.

I'm torn on what to do with the blend as well. I like the idea for a saison/farmhouse as that's my favorite type of beer to drink and brew. I'm thinking that it would be plenty for a 5-5.5 gallon batch as Al usually says his Brett cultures are packaged for that. I know he puts way more cells in there than others do. I may go for a Pilsner (2-Row), Raw Wheat and Spelt blend to give the Brett something to chomp on for a while. Something really rustic.
