Did you make a big enough starter with the Brett? The cell counts provided are teeny tiny, and typically for adding in secondary. If 24 hours and a single starter was all you used I would not be surprised if there is a substantial (as in days-weeks) lag.

Given the high capacity of yeast artificial chromosomes ( YAC) and bacterial artificial chromosomes ( BAC), using YAC and BAC as transgenic vectors may be an ideal tool ( http://goo.gl/AEwcdL ) because they can contain all major important elements of lacto protein.

It was a 1.5 L starter that was only 30 hours old when pitched. I’m going to leave it sit for another 5 days and after the July 4th holiday I’ll check to see if I should dump it and chock it up to experience. Might be a lot of trouble for no return on investment but, then again, experience is invaluable, right?
