    So at 1.5 years or more, would the Brett still be viable enough (albeit slow) to carb the beer?
    yes, there is still brett in there. it'll be slow. if you want to speed things up, you can add
    more bret...

    1) How should I go about adding the new wort to the cake? Should I attempt washing the cake at
    all, or just dump the new wort straight into the old carboy? yup, you can just pitch on top of
    the old ca...

    additional yeast is not required if you have brett in your sour. the brett will carbonate, it
    will just be slow - as in, it can take a month or more to carb. there is also a risk that the
    bugs eat up ...

    Will do, I just transfered it all into a keg with the brett back in March. I haven't touched it
    since. I probably should try it sometime soon and see what it's tasting like. I'll check it out
    soon and...

    I just got a bunch of funk on the house from my local brew shop. I got brett, brett brux, some

    am new to ...
