Re: Claussenii + bruxellensis all brett brew
So I rack a 100% brettC primary beer last night to secondary after 3 months in glass. The pitch was a huge 4 week long starter.

The grist was about 30/30/30 wheat-pils-munich with an OG of 1.054 and the last 10% as acidmalt

Gravity at transfer to secondary was 1.018.

HIgh mash temperature was used at about 156-158F.

Thought I'd put this info out since my other 100% Brett (L+B) finished at the mentioned 1.012 range. That one was almost all pils though.

NOt sure if the high finish was high mash temp related or due to massive munich in the grist or due to BrettC or BrettC health....

Funny, Pete...I racked my brett c&b saison to the secondary the day before yesterday, and that was down to ~1.011/1.012.....OG around 1.06.

Did you grow up the brett C or was it strait out of the tube?

Doh!....i see now..... Well, I used a sarter too(not a 4 week one though!). Maybe it's just the nature of the beast on its first run fermenting 5 gallons.

Racked the barleywine tonight. TG at 1.029 or so. Still at around 9.5 abv though. Tastes like just that, a golden bretty barleywine. Wonder what made my saison go so low? Perhaps the brett + lacto combo...

So far, although it's neat doing some all-brett c experimentation, the results haven't been all that exciting. The saison is promising though.

That's kinda been my experience too. Neat, but nothing all that amazing. I have a wit that I haven't tried since I kegged it a few weeks ago that was also very promising. With Brett C. I think I need to try a few batches with the WY Lambicus next.
