Yum! That sounds really tasty!

It will depend on the amount of fermentable sugar available for the yeast to consume. Mash schedule and the grist bill will be the biggest players, not to mention fermentation health.

I am guessing the Brett. in the WLP670 will get you pretty darn close to 1.000.

Turned out awesome!

Bottled in champagne bottles with 1/2 pack champagne yeast and simple syrup made with dextrose. The lemongrass is very subtle but good. This will age very nicely with the WLP670 yeast. Slight funky farmhouse character at bottling turned seriously spicy and weird after only a month in bottles. It's only going to get crazier. 

Next time might want to try lemongrass extract to get a sharper lemony flavor/aroma.

Someone try brewing this and let me know how it goes! This is going to be a nice cellar beer for months/years to come!

Brett can do some interesting stuff with other flavor compounds. I'm curious to see what it does to the lemongrass over time.
