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!

Re: losing sourness
I've had that happen with some of my all-Brett L beers. One of them started off so acidic that I was convinced I'd have to blend it to make it drinkable and all the sourness was completely gone within 6-8 weeks in the carboy.

Re: losing sourness
doh. Scratch that. After posting this it reminded me it was time to rack that beer off the cherries it was on. The acidity is back. It definitely disappeared at one point, but since then I put it on 4 lbs of dried cherries for 3 months, added a vial of WLP Brett B and dregs from a bottle of The Bruery's Saison Rue.

My only thought is that the brett in your mix may have somehow processed the acids a bit?
