Glad to see this, I am at hour 40 into fermentation with Funk Weapon #3 in a 1.054 OG pale ale with citra/mosaic and don't have much going in the fermenter other than a few wisps of pellicle forming. I left the 1.2L starter on the stir plate for 3 days, then let it rest for another 36 hours before pitching.

This is my first 100% brett fermentation, so I am not quite sure what to expect but I've read they can take a few days to get going. It's not helping that this was a split batch with the other half getting styrian goldings and my house saison strain and it's rocking and rolling already. Hopefully will see activity pick up in a day or two!

Mine is now down to 1.012 after two weeks. I'm having a real issue with 4-Vinylphenol from my readings on Milk the Funk. I get a real medicinal/band-aid/smokey smell and taste. I dry-hopped it yesterday and I going to let it go for 2 more weeks to see if it clears up.

If not it will be a dumper for me
