Roeselare and secondary fermentation
« on: September 08, 2012, 07:49:19 pm »
So I brewed up my first Flanders red attempt recently.  I pitched wyeast 1056 + roeselare.  It showed a lot of activity for 4 or 5 days then stopped but now appears to be picking back up.  I want to rack off the yeast that dropped out but I am unsure when the best time to do this is.  Will it still form a pedicle if I rack it off now?

Check out this other thread on a similar issue.

As I assume that as long as there is active Brett it will form a pellicle, but I would probably wait until the Saccharomyces is done fermenting before transferring.
