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!

Brett C.
I brewed my first pLambic using WLP550 and Brett C in half and Brett B in the other half w/Cantillon dregs. It has been 5 months in primary. Pellicles have formed in both. I am operating under the assumption of waiting until the pellicle drops before bottling. From what I have read Brett C is not as aggressive as other brett's so is it possible it is still active at 5 months? Is there any harm in bottling the Brett C portion before the pellicle drops?

Re: Brett C.
I have learned recently that your pellicle may not drop with brett, it does not behave like sacch. I have an all brett that never dropped the pellicle even out to 8 mos.

5 months is nothing. Check back in a year. ;)

The pellicle may never really drop. A one year wait before tasting is essential. You have to be prepared to forget these beers for a year or two and then try them and decide to either bottle them as is or blend. The variations are limitless.
