Brett Trois Ferment Temps

Have a 1.052 100% brett saison going at 66, its been pretty vigorous at that temp since saturday when i pitched. Just curious as to others’ experiences with brett trois ferment temps.

I’ve only used it once, at 74. It seemed to do fine, still took a few weeks to finish out, and it did so without any apparent off flavors (I brewed it about a month ago and just tapped it last night). It really performs much more like a sacc. yeast than any other brett I’ve used.

I’m pretty sure its a blend of bruxellensis and a sacc yeast. How is your beer tasting? My grain bill was pretty simple: 4# white wheat, 8# pilsner, 0.5# english caramalt. .5oz galaxy @ bittering, then a 30 minute galaxy hopstand with 2oz. Have high hopes for this one. Will probably jack the temp to 72 today, then 74 this weekend.

I added it to a saison when the Sacc dropped out, which was also when I added about 6 lbs of crushed blackberries. It added a nice tart finish IMHO.

it ferments fine provided you pitch enough, you are on the low end of temp, I would raise it after a few days to help finish

Nah it’s a pure strain of brett isolated by Avery brewing from a bottle of Drie Fontinen. The beer is outstanding… it’s a fairly standard tasting IPA with just a hint of over-ripe fruit in the nose. Nothing like the leather wallet aroma I’ve seen from other strains of brett b.

just read that in American Sour Beers!

My high hopes are still high, especially since I just blew my keg of IIPA this weekend. We’ve had a lot of visitors with a new baby!

wow. took a sample of this last night, and its spectacular. Just a hint of earthy funk, but overall a bright, tropical (hopefully the yeast working with the galaxy hop stand) pale ale/saison. Gravity was at 1.006, or 88% apparent attenuation. Probably going to cold crash soon and keg this sucker up.
