No problem, I will be attempting the Love buzz clone within the next few months, right now my only hold up is belgian bottles that will hold that kind of pressure, northern brewer wanted $50 just to ship 24 bottles ups ground!

How's your beer coming along WNCbrewer? Haven't tried the real thing yet, but it sure sounds good.

It is getting there, it has been in the bottle 2 1/2 months now and the brett character is just now starting to get where I want it. It was well received by members of my homebrew club and a pro brewer friend. I have decided to forget about it for another month and see where it is then. I am. Really pleased with the bitterness and aroma. Galaxy is a FANTASTIC hop, and the passion fruit note really complements the brett b nicely. I can post my entire recipe when I get home if there is interest. I plan on sending a bottle to mr. Fletcher once the brett develops a little more, he helped me a lot with this beer

Good to hear! +1 on the recipe. Just did a pils/wheat thing with a few ounces of late and dry-hopped galaxy. Tastes good so far!

Wncbrewer how is the carbonation level? Curious since you didn't add any extra sugar

The carb is good, but certainly less than the real galaxy and most commercial brett beers I've had. I think next time I will bottle at 1.006 (instead of 1.005) and see if that wont boost it just a touch. It is well carbonated for sure, just possibly a touch on the low side for the style. I would be extremely careful adding sugar, brett is a savage attenuator and I would really worry about gushers or bottle bombs. I will post a picture of the beer along with the recipe when I get home tonight

Here we are,

"Incarceration" white IPA w/brett

9 lbs pilsner malt (64.2%)
4 lbs wheat malt (28.6%)
1 lb flaked oats (7.1%)

Mash at 154 for for 90 minutes or until conversion is complete. I cant remember how I arrived at 154, but when I do it again it will be cooler, probably 148.

Target og is 1.056, I plan my recipes around 80% extraction efficiency, but poor brewhouse efficiency due to lots of dead space in my system. I have included percentages so you can change yours accordingly.

.5 oz galaxy (14% AA) first wort hops
.75 oz " " 30 mins.
1 oz " " 10 mins.
1 oz " " 5 mins.
1 oz " " 3 mins.
1 oz " " 0 mins (whirlpool)

2.25 oz galaxy dry hop for 10-14 days

Ferment with an adequate starter of white labs 400 for primary at 74 degrees (Gabe Fletcher ferments much warmer than this....like in the low 80's). Once gravity reaches 1.005, pitch brett brux and bottle, mine only got to 1.007, so I pitched the brett and bottled when gravity reached 1.005.

Allow at least a month to condition, two months if you expect any kind of brett character. Here is a pic....I get two fingers of big, rocky head with a pretty aggressive pour. It fades pretty fast for a belgian though. Here is a pic. I love this beer almost as much as the real thing....cheers...wnc

Ps, if you brew this let me know what you think

Looks nice I'm interested in trying something similar in the spring. Did you just pitch a vial of Brett brux or did you build it up?
