Well, I plan to ad the wine yeast and bottle condition. I'm just getting ready to ad the oak and let that sit until I'm satisfied with the taste.

I have two things that I am wondering about - 1) How many are adding wine to the fermenter with the oak; 2) Having never had the actual beer, what sort of carbonation level are we really shooting for? 2.5 vol, 3vol, 3+vol?

Mine's been in the carboy for a bit over a year and is down to about 1.002. Nice and tart, mild brett notes... or just plain good.

I just bottled my MoreBeer Consecration kit after 13 months of fermenting and aging. FG = 1.005. I used Rockpile yeast and 4oz corn sugar for bottle carbonation. It tasted and smelled great! Only a few weeks to go till tasting the final product after over a year of waiting....

I had a friend lift the dagger image from the RR bottle label and I etched it onto my bottle caps with the laser cutter we have at work. Turned out great! Picture attached.

What is the best temperature to store the bottled beer in after bottling with the corn sugar / wine yeast, while we wait for carbonation?

70-75F for a week or two should do the trick. I throw my bottle conditioning bottles into my ferment fridge and set my controller to 75 for two weeks and I have never had a beer fail to carb in that time.

I got one of those kits last summer. Brewed last weekend August '12. Bottled it mid-September this year.
The only thing I wasn't able to get with the high mash point - it stuck around 153, no matter what I did. Had an enormously active fermentation, racked to secondary and pitched the bug blend at about a month, maybe 6 weeks after brew day (don't have my notes in front of me.)I added the currents when I racked it, then added the oak around early August when I tasted it and it was almost where I wanted it.
I added a dash of S05 when bottling, and gave it a month in bottles before tasting. I'm extremely happy with how it came out, nice sour factor without being too much.
I do plan on brewing this again, though with the info sheet that came with it, I don't have to get the kit again.

Is there a consensus on what volume to carb this beer to? I'll probably shoot for 3vols but just curious what others are going for.

I recall one one of the interviews with Vinnie where he said he'd dialed back carb to balance acidity. Not sure he gave a figure and if so, I can't remember. I think it was his most recent Sunday session, from '11 maybe.

Cool, I'll dig that up. Thanks for the tip.
