Bretts in Chad's Crooked Stave?
My brother attended the GABF and brought me back a bottle of Chad Y.'s Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett series with Hawthorne and Hibiscus. Does anyone know what strain(s) of brett are in that beer?

Curious, as I have not yet opened it and was pondering adding them to a saison for finishing touches. Any ideas?

Chad is using several (4-5) strains of Brett in most of the 100% beers.

Good to know. I had a feeling he would go all out with his approach based on his Master's Project. Any ideas which commercial strains he is using?

It sounded like a lot of BSI Brett Drie, and his own isolates (in general). He said he really favors the strains that lean more fruity than funky in general.

Re: Bretts in Chad's Crooked Stave?
@brewinghard generally none of the strains I use are commercially available... I have on occasion used the BSI Drie in combination with others as well as Orval's Brett but I have moved away from using both.

With that said the Wild Wild Brett Rouge you have has both and is a "close to even" blend of 4 strains. The strain are BSI-Drie, my own Drie isolate which is our "house" strain, the Orval strain and B. custersianus from AlB.

I used those four strains in Orange as well and in Surette for secondary. They are very fruity and have great flavor stability over time.

Cheers!

Cool!

Good to know Chad! I have not yet cracked the bottle open yet, wanted to let it age a bit seeing how I probably won't get a chance to try another one of yours anytime soon (I live on the East Coast). Was thinking of using the dregs for a apricot/black pepper inspired saison.

Thanks for keeping our drinking world interesting and cutting edge! Keep up the good work! Cheers!

Haven't had it yet, but thought the pairing sounded interesting!
