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!

8 month old Farmhouse with Brett
So... many moons ago, ( just about 8 months ago exactly), I brewed up 5gallons of a real kitchen sink of a Farmhouse, ( pils, munich, quinoa, amaranth, spelt, oats, sugar, wheat),. I fermented it with a big starter of Al B's Brett blend #9, and 3724 pitched simultaneously. 27 IBU's or so, styrians or EKG's, can't rightly recall. Anyway... back in july I tossed in about 7#'s of local sour cherries. She's really starting to shine now... flavors are blending and calming and I do believe it'll be ready for some bottle conditioning soon.

I guess what I'm wondering if anyone could chime in on here is, would it be more advantageous to let it continue to bulk condition or to let it bottle condition at this point? It's got quite a nice acidity to it already... and the funk is most certainly there.... so I'm leaning towards a good 3-4 bottle conditioning... though I'm beginning to become a tad concerned she's been sitting on the cherries for too long.

I say if you're happy with the flavor profile, and the FG is in a safe range, bottle it up.
