Those are certainly the ballpark numbers, but even 1% acid is enough to impact most Sacch strains. A friend of mine recently did a 48 hour pre-ferment with lacto, then pitched US-05. The beer is super-sour, but it stalled at 1.009 (pretty high for the yeast/wort combination and there is some acetaldehyde).

I thought L. delbrueckii could only ferment lactose?

does lactobacillus delbrueckii produce alcohol?
I would try contacting wyeast or white labs (or whichever company you got the lacto from). I vaguely recall that one of them produced alcohol, and the other didn't...but I don't remember where I heard this from or if it was even valid...

I just ordered Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and Brettanomyces Lambicus and it said usually added after primary fermentation has begun and usually used with other yeasts so I was assuming that is what is usually done but I was assuming that was a style and I was going to try them alone but now am I to understand I may need another yeast with them to produce alcohol?
I tried doing a search and got tired of reading all the threads that had Brettanomyces in them so excuse me for being lazy and just asking the question.

That is what I have come to learn as well. I just filled the carboy this morning, and allowed the wort to chill after the mashout. I just pitched the lacto about an hour ago, and will add the yeast (US05) in the AM.

lacto delbrueckii is homofermentative, meaning it ONLY produces lactic acid, now there are other lactic bacteria that will produce other things, but both WY and WL strains only produce lactic acid

Jgln

- Brett produces alcohol, but will also metabolize almost all esters produces by other yeast/bacteria and make them its own

- You mustve been pretty lazy searching, there are lots of people that do 100% brett ferments, in fact Ive got two going right now, one with Brett C and the other with brett L, on its own it doesnt get as funky as when its used as a secondary strain (needs those other yeasts byproducts for crazy amounts of funk)

Ryan PA
- depending on how sour you want this you might even wait up to 2days before pitching US05, both WY and WL strains are horribly intollerant of hops, and need quite awhile to do their thing,

Cool. Will do, thanks. FWIW I am fermenting warm with the bugs, and plan to move to the cooler basement when I pitch the yeast. Sound like a good plan?

Thanks for the info that answers my question and explains the use of other yeasts and maybe I was lazy but it was hard to tell if they were not using other yeasts and not mentioning or they just didn't know what they were doing kind of like some of the people posting their questions here.
I had to place an order for grain, hops and yeasts and decided to try them but I have to admit never used them before and have not done a lot of reading here on this topic.

Somehow the lacto d. too mine from 1.032 to 1.011 in a couple days. I pitched dry yeast at that point, but I doubt the dry will do much with the remaining sugars.
