Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Making a Belgian Dark Strong with 100% brett
I have been thinking about making another 100% brett beer. After the brett swap that we did I started to think about making a brett beer with more of a complex grain build and a SG around 1.090. If this beer gets to a FG of 1.009-1.006(most of my brett beers get to 1.006-1.005) it will be about 11%ABV.(will bett do that) I have all four strains of the brett but I was thinking of using the Lambicus. mabe mixing two strains what do you think any ideas?

Brett C. and the Fantome strain worked for me! Your specs are in the ball park of my "olde ale". I think the mix with Brett L. is a fine idea, I have done that with another beer and am very pleased with the result.

Re: Making a Belgian Dark Strong with 100% brett
Bretts can certainly withstand higher alcohol percentages....Although you don't really see them commercially, except for a few examples - Cuvee de Tomme, Oer Bier Reserva, and Abbaye De St. Bon Chien, it is definitly possible to do. I attented a brett seminar recently hosted by White Labs and they discussed this. Bretts can do better than a lot of regular ale yeasts in that environment. They posed the idea of using brett in mead, which I thought was a pretty intruiging idea... after the seminar and trying the aforementioned commercial brews I was driven to try my own high-gravity wild brew and I made an extremely strong ale with an OG of 1.13.....I used the WL extra high gravity yeast, the WL Sour Blend, and added the dregs of a cantillon in the secondary... can't wait to see how it turns out!
