Using Beano to Finish a Brett Beer
If I have a Brett + Lacto beer that's a couple of months in the fermenter, and I like the taste of it, so I want to bottle it. For fear of bottle bombs, I want to get rid of the remaining sugars, can I add beano (and maybe some other yeast) to reduce the gravity quickly?

I don't think either of those would work. You could use Campden tablets and then try adding another yeast + priming sugar. The low pH might cause problems for new yeast. Or you could bottle condition to your desired carbonation level and then keep the beer refrigerated. If you want to drink it now it might be best to keg it.

Re: Using Beano to Finish a Brett Beer
I have read that Beano continues to ferment remaining sugars until the beer is bone dry. What is your gravity right now? If you are around 1.008, bottle it to 2.75-3 vol. of CO2and call it good.
