I wouldn't even want to ferment in a keg at all. I'd want to watch the pellicle! Sort of like having a science experiment that you cannot watch.

I am doing my first truly sour beer on the 13th. ...

I think putting it into the attic is not necessarily a good idea if it gets warm up there. I have no sours under my belt yet, but if you reread Wild Brews, you will see that the pros in Belgium say...

Some good information here! But, a few things that were different in my experience with Brett. I am just saying what I have personally experienced.

A pellicle is formed from the bugs, in this case Brett, forming a protective layer to keep out air. In my experience, it does not go away, but longest I have let Brett sit is maybe 7 months or...

Fruit in a carboy seems a bit rough to deal with just to get some visuals. Just ferment another one with no fruit and stick it in a carboy. With a bucket, I think you can better pics once you DO...

Chill, decant, measure SG and taste it. See if you have slurry in the bottom when you decant. Step the starter up with a proper 1.040 or so.

I made a starter with 677 recently. Went fine. But...

I've used 644, Brett Trois, maybe 6 times or something.

A one week primary is quite short. In fact, I would skip a two stage entirely.

I've made a number of IPAs with Trois, all with a 7...

I made a beer with wine yeast and Brett last year. The initial beer was a sort of Belgian IPA with Pils, Flaked Spelt and some sugar and all El Dorado hops. Pitched WLP550 and Lalvin 71B, one of...

WLP645 Brett C is a lovely yeast for 100% in primary. It actually gets some nice Brett notes. I left a beer in primary on that for six months and it picked up more Brett notes than WLP650 Brett B...

Yeah. I've had Trois starters smell like really rotting fruit and not in a pleasant way. And I've had them smell very sharp and sour. Neither carried over into the final beer.

I decanted mine except for about 500 ml or something. I agree with what you're saying here. Keep the O2 away in the main beer and you shouldn't have much if any acetic.

I wouldn't worry about the acetic. I had a very acetic starter with Trois a few months back and the resulting beer was great.

My process with that starter was a bit weird. I made the starter,...
