Sounds like you got a nice brett strain. Any idea what the final gravity is? If it's dominated by one strain of brett it'll probably be 1.012ish, if there's a mixed culture it'll be lower. That's not absolute though.

I love all brett beers

gonna try to keg it today. I'll check the fg then. I let it ferment at room temp for about 2 weeks then put it in my basment which is about 40 degrees for the last 2 weeks. It definitely got done with primary fermentation before it went down there but I know brett does some crazy stuff after fermentatin. I might have hindered some of it by cold crashing but i'll see what happens.

got down to 1.013. I don't notice the funkiness i previous thought i smelled. All I'm really getting is a little citrus from the cascades. i'm not sure what fermented the beer now

I drank a pint of the wheat i made with this yeas last night. It definitely has a tart slightly acidic taste to it. I keep thinking i taste oranges in it, i used cascades in it so i'm not sure how much of the citrus flavor is from those and how much is the yeast. Its a decent taste though. I pitched it into a brown ale that i'm going to later pitch onto a roeselare yeast cake. I just want to run this yeast through a few tests and see what kind of flavors it throws in a darker beer and also see if it forms a pellicle.

My brown ale is down to 1.010 from 1.056. If i measured everything right that's right around 6% abv and 80% attenuation. the yeast kinda smells like feet right now. so now i'm back to thinking its brett
