    At least 3 months but doesn't need more then 6 months....generally but you really need to go by
    your taste buds.

    From what I've read Brett stores better at ambient rather then fridge temps for long termI keep
    mine on the counter and it works well

    If you reuse a keg you need to take it completely apart to clean it. I use a cobra tap and a
    separate keg for my sours and stuff a bottling wand to bottle them. I think I'm going to add to
    my manifold...

    Yes it may get "sick" at some point and don't worry the Brett cleans it up with time. I let it
    sit for 8 months or so then let taste tell me when it's ready and depends if I'm blending it or
    adding fr...

    Ok I guess a more direct answer is how long should I put the oak in for assuming I use cubes

    I would still use a solid bung so you don't need to keep an eye on your airlock. I've seen too
    many people let their airlock run dry when its a beer that sits for a year on then it would get
    way too o...

    I use a solid cork stopper like you would use for an air lock but no hole and cork so it's more
    oxygen permeable seems to work well for my Flanders thus far. If I had more head space like a
    6gallon ca...

    Pellicle, it will get larger, don't worry and don't touch it just let it sit for a few months
    at least. You won't recognize the fruit at the end.

  • Posted in thread: Question about meaty/hot dog flavor on 09-25-2012 at 05:20 PM
    Brett tends to clean up many different flavors and produce its own. In the first year my
    Flanders got sick and slimy then tasted meaty and smokey then cleaned itself up later, well to
    be horsey and le...
