I am working with must in clean and sour beers currently, but have never used already fermented
wine. My theory is it will be closer to wine bbl aged flavors, probably similar to a fresh wine

Fyi, Cascade is pure lactoCascade only ADDS lacto (besides fermenting with a "belgian" primary
strain) but people have plated out brett on several of their beers. Almost certainly a result

I agree, you are in for a long haul. Most of the time we are asking brett to do cleanup work on
5-12 points, 20ish is asking a lot. Especially in a fairly high abv environment. Champagne
yeast will do...

Your gravity should've been lower just on wlp500 alone. What temp is it/has it been at?

Or....brew a dark base sour. There are a few dark sours out there that use bourbon barrels, it
is a nice combo. After that you might be able to do lighter colored beers.

to oxygen, i...

Not sure what you have available down there in the southern hemisphere. If you can get ahold of
The Yeast Bay you could have a beer ready in that time frame using the Brett Saison or sour

Not having a pellicle doesn't really mean anything. It's probably fine. If you rack or sample
then I'd expect a pellicle to form due to the presence of oxygen

Posted in thread: Elements of good fruit to sour a beer. on 06-16-2015 at 07:04 PM
Don't waste your money on primary fruit. If you want added funk use your mash schedule or add
sugars and dextrines. Fruit is a waste, save that for secondary after the beer tastes done
