So I went out there, they don't do slurries anymore. Midnight brett is the house strain, I have a few friends who are higher ups at the brewery. I got a few bottles and plan to culture it.

The person i spoke with was not particularly informative. I have a couple friends who are on vacation but more involved and the brewery, I plan on speaking with them when they return. I get the sense that it was bottle conditioned with their non brett house strain, although there is still Brett in the beer from the original fermentation, they do not pasteurize it or anything like that.

Send me a sample of this. Thanks in advance.

I had a cold when I tried Midnight Brett, but it definitely reminded me of the 'porters' I made with WLP645.

It's similar (lots of fruit). But Allagash is way more citrus heavy instead of the tropical flavors you get with Brett C. The Golden Brett, which is the same strain, tastes like lemonade.

Dr neato, if that is your real name, are you requesting a bottle or just a slurry sample from my new set of yeast distribution equipment?

The latter would suffice, many thanks.

Any way I can help, Doctor. Expect your authentic slurry within the month.
