    Late Addition Brett: For Homebrew and Commercial Beers

    I'm interested to know if people have experience of opening bottled and fully carbonated beers to add Brett to them at a later date? The inspiration came after a recent batch of Tripel turned out pretty poor; however, at the time of bottling I put aside 6 bottles to which I added dregs from a...
