Am I ok?
« on: October 09, 2018, 09:01:38 PM »
I bottled a beer yesterday, final gravity was below 1.000 and the beer sat for 2-3 months in a single carboy. Brett is in there. So I used carbonation drops as always and open a package of bottle conditioning yeast. I sprinkled some new yeast in each bottle, just a little.

I’ve read on posts about doing this to get healthy fresh yeast in bottles, since the yeast that was likely in the carboy would have been stressed out, and probably wouldn’t have been the best. But then again, the Brett.

So now I wait. And hopefully no bombs.
Anyone have experience with really low gravity bottling? Or repitching yeast the way I did?

Brett would carbonate the beer in maybe about a month.  Fresh yeast can get it done in a week.

That’s good to know. Because I’m going to enter it to my club in like 3 weeks. In the future though if I do a Brett beer I might consider not repitching since Brett is there.
