Sounds like the Brett to me. I wouldn't worry.

Checked the gravity a few days ago. It was down to 1.022, which is pretty much where I wanted it. The brett ought to take off a few more points in the coming months, and add their own unique funk. I hope, anyway. Still no fugly pellicle yet.

I'm a little late to the party, but I'm brewing this up today. Doubled the batch to 10g. Old Ale Blend isn't currently available, so I'm splitting and doing 5g with Ringwood Ale and the other 5g with Ringwood + Brett L. Should be tasty.

Question for anyone: The treacle, at what point do you add it? With the first runnings as part of the carmelization? Once all runnings are combined? At 5 min? At flame out?

That's what I was thinking, but the recipe states start of boil...which I thought was odd.

I think I added the treacle at 10 min before flameout. At flameout would work too, but it's some thick stuff. I wanted to make sure it was fully integrated in the wort and didn't have any concentrated blobs.

To make treacle (or molasses) sugar cane syrup is boiled for hours. The little bit of boiling in wort won't hurt the aroma.

I wondered that. I wasn't sure how it was made, but I thought it might be like maple syrup so an hour of boiling wouldn't matter.

Ok, I'll probably add it 5 or 10 before flameout to make sure it gets good and mixed in.

Well, I still haven't bottled, but I did check the gravity a couple days ago. The brett has taken it from 1.022 to 1.011. In total it's gone now from 1.084 to 1.011, at around 9.something%, and tastes AMAZING! It's slightly warming and very smooth, and very easy drinking for such a big beer. This recipe (and yeast) is definitely a keeper.
