It was 5 gallons of BDSA that had stopped at 1.035. A month ago I blended it with another 5 gallons of the same Batch that had sat on sour cherries with Brett. The brett is noticeable but I think I need more sour. Should I just be patient or repitch more bugs?  Also, what temp should it be sitting at? I want a big gnarly pellicle that will scare my GF!!

I brewed a BDSA that was aged on sour cherries and I added a vial of Brett brux.  I didn't think it was sour enough so I ended up pitching the dregs from several bottles of Jolly Pumpkin beer.  After a year or so, it was at the sourness level I wanted.  I kept it at cellar temperatures which was low to mid 60s.

Be patient - wlp655 has a strain of pedio, which is the only bacteria that will contribute sourness to your BDSA (the the abv and hopping rates are probably high enough to stun the lacto). Pedio is extremely slow to start, especially in secondary.

I do agree with dbarber - a few more pitches of bottle dregs would benefit the beer and give you an excuse to drink some sours!

I have more picture than this, but here's what I have access to at the moment:

My first lambics looked like this (WY3278 & dregs) back in 2011 - I should post some more recent pictures of this guy, he's really gotten gnarly:



My most recent Golden Strong that I soured with Roeselare:


And my all time favorite is a BDSA that I added Wyeast Brett Lambicus to - wicked!:


I'll try and update when I get access to my real camera after work sometime.

Fail on my part!  ;D I'll get them up properly when I get some time to track down the files next week.
