I just got two tubes of this and I am pretty excited to use em.

Go find anything written by Chad Yakobson (crooked stave) on brett. He uses this strain quite a bit.

On pitching rate: he recommends 100% brett ferments with lager scale pitching rates for speedy attenuation. And give the starter a week.

Where did all of you get your vials? Couldn't find it online.

I was pretty OCD about getting them. I ordered it on northern brewer monday morning (been looking every day for a week). Honestly, I don't have the vials in hand yet, but they should be here tomorrow. I saw today they were all out!

We will see if they actually sent me what I ordered

I'm checking my LHBS today to see if they have this but if not does anyone know what online retailer has this in stock? If they do have it today I am willing to snag a few vials and share with you folks in exchange for beers on the back end.

I just ordered 2 vials as well. Im considering doing either a Belgian Wheat beer with it OR a Golden Strong with honey replacng the sugar (1 vial of Brett and 1 vial of a Belgian ale strain if I do this) Ive had tremendous luck pitching Brett alongside Saccro. It gives a much more intense Brett chracter and finished rather quickly...last beer took 6 weeks and obvious Brett character was there in 4 weeks.

...quick question though...considering that WL's synopsis seems to recommend a 100% fermentation with it...are the cell counts higher than in a traditional vial of Brett?

When I pitched the trappist blend (orval-like blend of sacc and brett) into an orval clone, it got SUPER bretty in only a few months. For orval you really need to do like they do it: sacc first, mash a bit high. dry hop in primary. brett in the secondary/bottling bucket and bottle immediately with heavy bottles. that way you get the dry hop/belgian sacc character early on, and over time the brett takes over.

Really good question on cell count; Ill send them an email!

If people are really having a hard time getting a vial, I would be happy to fill a vial from my most recent yeast cake.

WLP644 is a reduced count:

******
Andrew,

All of our Brett strains, including the 644, are reduced cell counts and
are intended to be used in a secondary fermentation. If you want to do
primary fermentation with Brett, you will need to either use multiple vials
or propagate the yeast yourself.

Cheers!

Thanks for finding an answer! It's a little bit misleading, but I certainly understand it.
