I've recently harvested the dregs from a 2008 Boulevard Saison Brett that I would like to try to use. What are te chances that I have viable yeast in there? Should I just pitch it into a starter and see if I get any action to see? I've got a honey wheat wine that I want to turn it loose in.

Thanks,
GTG

Brett can hang around for a *really* long time. Make a starter, it's the cheapest way to find out.
