What are the thoughts on Brett Trois making bitterness stronger? I haven't seen that anywhere before until this thread.

The FG goes down more. Lower FG = increase perception of bitterness, that's all.

sure it goes down more, but not that much. every all brett i've done has been about 80-85% attenuation which is barely lower than chico would take it

Well.. I expect a normal IPA tongo down to around 1010 to a 60-70 ibus. For a 644 ipa, i would expect maybe 1005. So 55-60 ibus seems just right.

Chico or 001 enhance bitterness also, compared to an english strain.

That's why I brought up the question of IBUs, I think both of those are around 100, aren't they?

And in my opinion, oats flavor just don't go with fruitu hops. It might gives you more mouthfeel, which is good, but also an intense flavor. If you want to increase mouthfeel, i suggest a tiny amount of rye flakes or malt, which gives you a greater texture with a less intense, well-blending taste.

As for the wheat.. I love wheat ipa.. But you just have to know it's going to be a wheat ipa

But hey, this is only my opinion!
I like the flaked rye suggestion, probably gonna go with that. How much aroma hops do you usually shoot for in your ipa's?

I would never go less than 5 or 6oz for an IPA.

Ok I just tasted the second step of starter... HOLY WOW!
That tastes like a pineapple berliner weisse. It is acidic, but it is so good.
I'm gonna brew a Brett Trois berliner weisse, that's for sure!

But now I'm gonna decant it because I don't want that acidic note in my DIPA.

if you drink your DIPA inside of,say 2-3 months,then you will not even get a hint of tartness showing through the hops.
Keep it for 6 months upward and then you will get a bit of acidity.
