Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

First Brett beer-need consulting!
Hey guys. So I have a blonde that didn't ferment as far as I would have liked. I transferred to a 2ndry to free up space after 8 days of fermentation. Its in week 3 now and only down to 1.020. I've been looking for a good excuse to get into Bretting, so I figured now is a good as time as any. I was thinking about adding some Orval dregs to it, plus some wait time and see what happens. Any good guesses on how many bottles would be ideal? I gather that I can use a smaller amount, but wait longer and I'll get possibly more complexity. Tips?

Drink whatever Orval you want to drink and add the dregs to your beer. The more, the better, but it's amazing what one can do if given enough time to do ti's thing.

I was thinking 2-3, just because; rough work, I know...but someone has to do it now!

Dumping Orval dregs in beer is something I've been doing for quite a while. Wait a couple months before tasting the results and you'll be rewarded.

I used two bottles worth of dregs (dumped 'em straight in) on a belgian stout and I can just start to taste the brett influence at 2.5 months aging at ~ 64.
