Making a starter for Brett
« on: November 17, 2009, 11:06:23 AM »
How slowly would Brett grow on a stir plate? Planning to do an entire beer fermented with nothing but Brett 8)

I've had brett starters from Orval dregs ready in 4 or 5 days without a stir plate, others took a lot longer depending on the bottling date.  If you're using White abs or wyeast  it shouldn't take much longer than any other yeast.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico
