Default LHBS said bottle after a week?

I asked the guy at the LHBS about a Brett. beer and he said bottle in a week or it'll sour and I want a second opinion.

I recently did a batch that started at 1.051 and after 8 days in primary fell to 1.012 using wyeast 1007 at 55F. Then I racked to a secondary and pitched Brett. B. and plan on letting it go for at least 6 months.

Now the guy at the LHBS thought that was crazy. What do you think?

Do you not want it to sour?

Let it go for at least 6 months. It sounds like you know more about what you're doing than he does.

Thanks for the reassurance. I had always heard that Brett. should go at least 6 months, AT LEAST. But this is my first time using Brett. so I figured I'd check with people on this site after getting a different opinion from the LHBS guy.

thanks again.

By the way, should I be concerned with any yeast cake produced in secondary?

you're LHBS guy def doesnt know what he's talking about, unless he thought it was on accident. either way, brett doesnt make it sour.

dont worry about the yeast cake in the secondary

Brett can and will make it sour, it just needs O2 to do it.

You need Pedio or Lacto to make it sour. With Brett, all you will get is the funk.
