I like to stress saison yeast a bit. With the 3724 alone I often get stuck ferments, but with the brett I've never had it hang.

That's not just harsh. That makes me wonder if you drank a weird bottle once and wrote it off forever. I brew a lot of sours, drink as many as I can afford, and I still like coming back to revisit...

I typically do 2-3 months and bottle once the gravity levels off.


Huh. I rarely see krausen after adding brett to secondary. I guess I usually use fermcap in primary, though, so maybe that...

Props for doing your own research and changing your mind after seeing the evidence. Hopefully your experience encourages more people to drop the 5.2 habit!

3711 will also ferment hot. My house saison is 6.5% ABV, fermented with an equal blend of 3711/3724 at 82. Never had any issues.

I have never gotten fusels from brett (which isn't to say it can't...

If I paid the keg deposit, then it's my choice to cut it up into scrap rather than return the keg and get my $30 back. No amount of nanny nagging from internet busybodies is going to change that.

Get yourself some FermCap. It's a food-safe additive that kills foam, so it's good both in the boil and in the fermentor. It'll drop out after the ferment is done, so you don't have to worry about it...

If you're pitching onto a cake, I would add Brett at the same time rather than later. That 3711 is a super aggressive strain. You can still get brett character without a change in gravity, but I feel...

Hey, that's awesome! Stan's "ok" on this beer is pretty stellar. I haven't entered it in a comp since NHC 2011- maybe it's time to ship it off again.

As far as I know, yes. NHC judging is usually done at a local brewery, who stores the beer until the judging. 1500 bottles is a lot, but most comps don't go over a hundred entries, and those numbers...

If you underpitched, expect a long attenuation and more traditionally "brett" flavor/aroma.
