Brett

(1/1)

bruck:
Hi folks....About to brew my first Belgian using Brett. Any suggestions/tips or things to watch out for. Not sure why, but I am a little nervous.

corkybstewart:
Are you going with primary fermentation with Brett, or adding it too secondary.  If you want to add it to secondary rack the beer when it gets to about 80% of your expected FG and prepare to wait as long as 6 months. 
Are you using bottle dregs, or a vial/pack of Brett?  A starter is helpful, but I've had  beers do just as well without.
What's the base recipe?

bruck:
I'm adding it to the secondary. Pitching from a Wyeast pack. I hadn't planned on making a starter for the Brett, but will definately make one for the primary yeast. It's actually a recipe that I got in Jamil and Palmers BCS.
