The WPL510 Bastogne yeast (Plantinum series) is the same as the Orval yeast. From what i have read, most breweries do not bottle condition with their house strain.

I would pitch it into secondary. That is where you will get the most out of the Brett Brux that is evident.

I don't think the 510 has brett in it. I've pitched orval dregs directly in secondary and it will build up some nice brett character.

I would say a brewery conditions beer with whatever yeast they have on hand. In an American craft brewery that.could be a Belgian, lager, or their ale strain. In breweries that only use one yeast I would give you a guess what they use. Bottle conditioning beer isn't like Cold War espionage, they use whats on hand which is typically their yeast strain.

Of course there are always exceptions......
