Prep was normal. Priming sugar, etc. I added the drops to a bottles that were heavier, i.e. Trappist, Duvel, etc.

The low fg (1.003) meant that there wasn't a heckuva lot for the Brett to eat anyway but I figured it should be enough to give it an interesting note or 2. And I was correct!

If I do it again, which I plan to, I will probably do half a batch normally adding half the priming sugar and the other batch I will cut the priming sugar by maybe 1/4 assuming my FG is that low again and then add the Brett directly do each bottle again. The dropper of slurry really seemed to do the trick so I'm happy with that and the carbonation is just a hair over what I wanted.

I'm fully planning on doing the same thing with my saison that I just brewed on Friday. When it comes bottling time I will hit half with JP critters via pipette method.
