I just brewed a saison this weekend with WLP670 american farmhouse and I was contemplating brewing another saison and pitching on my yeast cake in 3 months when I bottle this. Are their any issues in reusing a yeast cake from a brett blended yeast?

Bump... I was thinking about the same thing. I'm about to use this strain and would like to keep it in primary for a couple months. Then I'd like to use part of the cake for a stronger saison.

Go for it. Any blend is going to stray from the original balance, but if your starter ferments and smells good, it'll make beer. My wild guess is that you'll have more Brett than Sacch after three months.
