I would guess that it depends on if there is any residual oxygen left in your blend. If brett had already consumed all of the oxygen in your oxygenated half, then you shouldn't have anything to worry...

I know the Tart of Darkness clone from Morebeer uses some chocolate malt. Personally, I have done two dark funky beers: a 100% brett trois porter and a dark session ale with Roselare. Both times I...

I just picked about 2 gallons of Vitis riparia too, and I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. I like the idea of fermenting the wine out on its own and then blending it with some of...

You could always try dosing it with a brett culture in each bottle or in the keg. That would speed up the brett development significantly.

I use Brewer's Friend's calculator and it says, if you are pitching 1.25 billion cells/ml you need 580 billion. I always pitch at that high a rate when I am dealing with high gravity worts. Even if...

Mike,

I bought your book last weekend and like it a lot thus far. I did have one question that popped up during reading it though. You mentioned that you thoroughly aerate your wort and and pitch...

5 packs of US-05 should be fine. And might actually be cheaper than trying to make a 10 liter starter.

I'll leave it to smokinghole to determine if this is a good plan of attack for a brett stout, but I do want to chime in and confirm that you are doing a starter for your US-05. Otherwise you will...

The other point that I don't think has been brought up yet, is that 1.103 down to 1.020 is already 81% apparent attenuation and close to 11 ABV. You are already pushing the alcohol tolerance and...

There is a lot that can be done without filtering to get it off the yeast cake. If you cold-crash the carboy, then rack the beer to a second carboy without disturbing the yeast cake, then add k-meta,...

Like I said, I have never used a water recipe on any of my sours. I blend RO and tap water in appropriate proportions until I get the pH I need.

IMO, water profile is very unimportant for sours. You will get very little flavor from any ion adjustments. The brett/lacto/pedio will be the dominant flavors in these beers. Just nail your mash pH...

A good way to get acid is to pitch your yeast in a low-oxygen wort. This gives the lacto and pedio a head start before sacch and brett can start working. I think oxygen exposure is not necessary and...
