Actually, my brett only beers have finished in much the same time as sacc beers. Maybe a day's different as a maximum to reaching FG

I would very much caution against using this kinda stuff. If you do, it had better be as part of your mash. There is no effective way of shutting down the enzymes, and you will very likely end up...

Good to hear. I just had a taste of my DIPA (still in the process of dry hopping), and is very promising. It has some brett trois in it. I'm not sure it will offer anything massively distinctive in...

I havent used this one, so I can only speculate. The only Trappist beer with brett is Orval. So... I'm guessing thats what they are going for. I dont think Wyeast actually has the Orval yeast. So I...

I bottled half of this a couple of weeks ago. I got impatient and tried one last night. Still needs some time to carb up properly, but it is very nice.

Over the past 2 months i have managed to brew 35 gallons of sour and wild beer. More than half of that will be sitting around for a year or so.

It not a bad yeast. It attenuated well and results in a beer with a lot of character. It doesn't flocculate particularly well though so takes a long time to clear.
