Doubtful, they go through a pretty rigorous cleaning process. Now the orchard, the apples, the press and the cidery itself develops it's own unique yeast culture over the years allowing for a consistent product and takes 90% of the guesswork out of using 'wild' yeast.

Interesting.

Are you gonna let it keep going since you've already passed you target or are you planning to help it stall out via multiple rackings the old fashioned way?

Since my goal isn't to have a sweet cider, but rather to have created an environment where brett and saccharo ferment in tandem, I am going to let it continue on. Its encouraging that the fermentation is on track with my lambic fermentations, but I have no idea what is going to happen.
