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!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

brett fermentation in keg
Just a quick question to the BBB! Brewed a 100% brett C. beer and it finished a bit high (1016). Racked it to a keg and added a pack of Brett B. to hopefully finish the job on some of those remaining sugars.

Can I just carb up the beer in that same keg after it reaches its desirable gravity or am I going to have a ton of yeast sediment in my pours? Or should I just rack it clean to a new keg for serving?

I've done that before with good results. I'd say if you have the capability to crash the keg in a cold fridge when you're happy with the SG level, you can do that, and then pour off a pint or two of cloudy sediment and you'll be all set!

I agree. What I like to do in addition is, once the beer is pouring nicely, use a OUT to OUT connection to transfer the beer to a new keg. In time stuff will continue to fall out, but the majority of the schmootz will be gone for good.
