I finally got around to listening to it. You did a nice job, Dan. It's good to see that the information is still relevant. I still use this technique with the 1 gal batches off of my main batch, but...

Used it all. And ardyexfor is correct that by leaving it on the cake you will produce a more Brett forward beer.

You can rack to secondary and will still get plenty of yeast and bacteria still in...

I can concur about the use in secondary. It lends a very mild "Brett" character that is more to the stone fruit flavors rather than the barnyard. The intensity of flavor is restrained and gives just...

Are you sure of the model number? It looks like there are two versions of the GE 7 cu in freezer and some fit 4 kegs and some don't.

Mine fits 4 ball-lock kegs no problem. We could confirm if it...

For next time, I found the viability stays much better for Brett and other bugs when kept with beer. The trub actually is a carbon source for Brett and can keep it alive for a long time. So the best...

smokinghole - I had the same experience with my Table Saison with 100% Brett Drie - I really think it has something to do with the sugar complexity in the wort.

So you haven't seen any activity since pitching 4 days ago? No bubbling or positive pressure in the airlock?

You do want the Sacc yeast in both of the blends to ferment the bulk of the sugars,...

I've done a 1.085 O.G. Flanders Red with the Roeselare blend. It soured up nicely, the same as my 1.060 version. It also finished around 1.015 and had a very vinous quality. After 1.5 yrs I bottled...

I agree that the carbonation time is no different than Sacc times. And these beers change pretty considerably in the first few months.

You might want to put some Fermcap in there or use a blow-off. With 1.094 starting gravity you will probably get a pretty violent fermentation.

Platypotamus - No need to cold crash unless you are wanting to keg your beer. And then it is very helpful because the Brett is difficult to clarify. I don't think these beers really need to be clear,...

Ok that helps a little bit.
The Brett will not sour the beer, you will need to add lactic bacteria - Lacto or pedio. You could also do a sour mash or add acid malt. I would suggest that you look...
