I'm also thinking of doing an all Brett Strawberry Blonde using some organic strawberries donated from a friend's garden.

I see more carboys are in my immediate future...


I would use brett bruxelles for this

I'm assuming you're talking about this?

Just racked the Kriek onto 6 lbs of cherry puree and then pitched a blonde ale onto the yeast cake. I'll check back in a year or so with an update

OK so it's only been 48 hours. I'm still not seeing any activity whatsoever and I'm wondering if it was a mistake to just rack onto the lambic blend yeast cake without swirling it up to get everything in suspension. Should there be enough viable yeast after 3 months to start fermenting a new batch of wort? Should I shake it up to try and get the yeast going again? Or is there just a longer lag time when pitching onto a 3+ month old yeast cake?

I have no doubt you'll be posting next week about how you shouldn't have worried. It'll take off.
