    If you want complex, use brett. All of these strains are great to work with. I only do them in
    the 70's. Around 50% attenuation pitch some brett and leave it alone for at least 3 months. Try

    It looks like you have some break material floating on top. Totally normal. I'll bet its tasty.

    Give me a pack of US-05 up against WLP 001 any day. I love the convenience.
