Thanks for the feedback, smokinghole. Yes, my intention is not an Orval clone per se; just
process inspired. I've been wanting to try out the Brett Trois so thought this would make a
nice beer. I'll u...

Hi all, I will be brewing an Orval-inspired beer with WLP510 and WLP644, and want to know if

whitelabs brett-C pitch once, took it 3 days to get going but man was it a good beer. (Scored a

my early batc...
