Fortunate change of plans for the Golden Strong. I managed to come across a vial of East Coast Yeast ECY09 (Belgian Abbaye), I will do a mixed starter of ECY09 and Brett B Trois and let it run. I cannot wait to brew this.

I have a batch fermenting now. The fermentation appears more vigorous then the batch fermenting with 3711. It smells pretty tropical as it is fermenting.

Very nice! What was your starter size and did you aerate?

I used a 1000mL 1.040 starter pitch into 4 gallons of ~1.040 wort.

For the batch I diluted 6 gallons of 1.80 worth 50/50 with bottled water. To aerate I shook the Carboy.

This Brett strain and most of them have very low flocculation. You may need to assist the yeast to floc out with a cold crash and a bit of pressure. But then separating it from the trub should be pretty easy.

I just ordered two vials of this before it left the shelves. I plan on a 100% trois wit, and maybe using that as a washed yeast for a dubbel recipe. I will then probably start my own saison blend and use this the brett in the blend.

Did people's starters get going immediately? I have made a 500 mL starter and the next morning there was definitely activity. People say brett starters need more time to get going, but perhaps Trois is faster? I am just wondering if I have sacc in there too on accident.
