Just picked up a vial of this today. I have a stout I brewed up nearly three weeks ago that got stuck at about 1.030, ( SG 1.046'ish),. Initially fermented with the NW Ale strain from Wyeast. I then pitched rehydrated s04, also to no avail. After serious consideration, I've decided against pitching standard sach again and just souring this emmer-effer.

Long story short, I will be souring a stout with this new release.

Are they calling 665 "Flemish Ale Blend" now?

I had the same thing happen with a stout didnt finish where I wanted it to. So yesterday I put Roeselare into it.
I am nervous because it did have 50 IBU's .

NEED to use my vial soon. I have an Oud Bruin on the schedule, but have been tempted to do a blonde instead.

Just pitched a fresh vial 2 days ago into a 44 SRM "Oud Zwarte" (black instead of brown 'cause it's darker). Anyways, 1 day lag and its kicking off belgian esters at around 75F with a beautiful kreusen. I am super excited. Also, would love to try roeselare (which does not contain brett whereas 665 does and therefore makes it more authentic for an oud bruin?) but my LHBS said they never had the demand for wyeast so they only stock white labs.

Roeselare does have brett:

"Specific proportions of a Belgian style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture produce the desirable flavor components of these beers as they are brewed in West Flanders."

You can always just add a single brett strain and hope it doesn't dry out too far. I've started brewing an annual imperial stout with the wyeast old ale blend brett. This is the second year.
