I got a can of Brett last week thatís supposed to be cultivated from nine different strains from 3 Fontienen, Boon and Cantillon (three from each). I just have to figure out what to do with it... Smelled wonderful (funky) when I opened the lid to relieve the pressure.

Just brewed one of those last night...will be kegged though, so I am not worried about the same issue on that one!

Is that the BSI Drie? Weíve been testing it and saw very fast fermentations down to under 2P in several days.

Mixed Brett fermentations are pretty damn cool.

Did one with Brett B & C a while back. LOTS of tropical fruit in the nose and taste with a bit of funk to round things out. Attenuated more than a straight Brett C beer would have, so that was nice as well.

Just went with a simple grainbill of pils and oats, single infusion at the higher end of the spectrum, and a moderate bittering addition. Something like that would really let you know what youíre workiní wit.

Actually itís not a dedicated Brett Drie beer. It is a culture from the dreggs of Crooked Staveís Wild Wild Brett Yellow which, from what Iíve read, has 5 strains of Brett. The two major ones being Brett Drie.
