I guess I didn't realize how well known Atrial Rubicite was, but it is my favorite :) . That's what I did, pitched some JK dregs along with some 3724. Next time I'm going to try to build up some JK...

Yeah, I learned my lesson with the 3711. I had no idea 8 points wouldn't be enough to get some funk out of the brett b. I recently did a sour and used 3724 instead and pitched a bunch of bottle...

Should I bottle my saison brett now?

I've had my saison aging with brett b now for 1 year. I took a sample yesterday and the gravity was .997 (temp corrected) and it tasted rather bland, clean and dry, not a lot of funk to it. Being...

Thanks for the reply. I did read that the brett character does take longer to come out vs the lacto, and that's what I think my sour is missing so time will definitely help that. I'm in no rush so...
