An update: the portion of this batch that wasn't blended has been in the bottles for 2 weeks and went into the cellar today for at least 6 months before one is opened.

The unblended beer is already old why wait six months to try some? Its not like it will change a whole lot for better or worse in six months compared to its overall age.

It's goes from what I heard from gabe fletcher about Brett changing under its own pressure after time in the bottle. I did an experiment with GI Juliet in a similar manner. I tried it at 6 months and it was ok but at a yr old it really started to show more Brett and body. This is all an experiment and I have enough bottles to do 6 month increments to see any if improvements.

It's not the age of the beer, but rather the time in contact with brett that matters. That is why the ancient beer still needs to be aged.

I missed the Brett part. Oops. I saw the beginning of the thread and then the bottle. This whole 6 month thing makes sense now.

No worries. If it wasn't for the cellar idk if I'd be able to wait till November to try it because I would see them everyday begging to be opened.

Bottled the blend last. These will sit for 3-6 months to condition in the bottle.
