Thoughts on Brett B and dry hopping?
I racked some belgian pale ale into a carboy with Brett B. I'm planning to let it sit 6-9 months to get a fully developed brett profile, then keg and add dry hops.

This is somewhat different than the classic Orval that is dry hopped and bottled, then over time the hops fade and the brett develops.

Any thoughts on a strong brett B character and fresh dry hopping? Anyone done this? Any thoughts on hop selection? The pale ale itself had Aurora Styrians, Goldings and Willamette, was thinking of dryhopping with an ounce of Goldings.

Let me know what you think, any suggestions, or similar experiences? Thanks,

Re: Thoughts on Brett B and dry hopping?
I would think it would be pretty good, depending on what hops you used. I've had some good dry hopped sours that I've made, never just a brett beer though. I'd say when it's ready to keg taste it and compare it with the hops you have around at the time to see what might work best. Willamette or Golding sounds good to me... maybe Centennial.

Centennial is an interesting possibility, don't want anything super agressive/piney, but the floral citrus of Centennial could work well. Goldings/Willamette I am sure would be fine, but wouldn't mind putting a mild twist on it.
