    I think comps are a great way to get advice and pointers but you have to take them with a grain

    don't even g...

    Update: After pitching the vial of Brett on 2/2/14 I didn't see any activity except the
    pellicle form a few days later. Around mid April I did a taste test and the cider was still

    Almost a year later and no takers? I'll take a stab at it and assume that stepping up a starter

    Happy Friday! :ban:I have a vial of Brett C. WLP645 and want to do a 1.25 gallon batch with it.
    Mr. Malty say I need 96 billion cells and the vial has 1.8-2.7 billion cells in it. How big of
    a starter...

    Now I'm wondering how I know when it's time to bottle?
