I watched a brewer at a large local brewery push the beer out of the barrel with co2... Just a bung with a gas in and beer out tube straight into the keg.

There is definitely some funk that can come with a 100% brett fermentation, though I think its strain dependent. CMY01 from Crooked Stave gave me a lot of tropical fruit with some funk as well.

I should probably add that the brett probably did all of the work making this beer. I haven't had much luck with 100% brett beers with commercial strains.

I brewed a saison/pale ale with a culture of brett from crooked stave. I used Galaxy, Mosaic and Citra. Heavy on the Mosaic, light on the citra because I find it overpowering sometimes.

I find that my brett beers clear up under pressure as well. Every time I've bottled a cloudy brett beer it's clear after a few weeks for whatever reason.

Normal airlock is fine. I prefer the S shaped airlocks for long term aging because they seem to need refilling less frequently than the 3-piece.

Room temperature is fine. I wouldnt go much lower than 65ish because the brett will work very slowly, but 85-100 is far higher than I would let it sit.

If you don't want oak flavor, don't add...

I have an american oak spiral Ive never used. I might have to cut a small chunk off and let it sit on that for a while. Maybe add some of the Crooked Stave brett Ive built up and see if that helps.

If you were expecting something like Lindemans than I can see why you might have been disappointed... but it sounds to me like it would have been a good beer.

If you are using lacto to sour it, the best method is to sour the wort pre-boil. Once the wort is as sour as you would like, boil and add your hops and ferment like normal.

If you have a good...

Arvada? I grew up there...

I would expect more flavor development from the brett. I have noticed flavors change once the beer is under pressure, and sometimes increased activity.

I just opened a bottle of my 100% brett pale ale last night. This beer is quite tart, to the point where I would suspect there is lacto in the beer if I hadnt made it myself. Either there is a very...

Ive used wyeast German ale around 55-58 for an Alt and a Biere de Garde. Both attenuated where i wanted, but needed a diacetyl rest.

Lighter crystal malts will just make the beer taste sweeter. If it was too sweet, I would suggest just dropping the amount of c40 instead of using a lighter crystal. Though the 5% c40 in your...
