Notesended up with 9.5 gallons of 1.073, watered down to 12 gallons of 1.058 in the fermenters.
mixed the two Roeselare packs with a rehydrated US-05, and pitched half into each bucket around 75F.
Two days later, I've got clogged airlocks and one of the lid blows off. This is why I ferment in a spare shower. Smells great while I'm cleaning homebrew off the ceiling. I pull the airlocks and move to quasi open fermenters (lids on, no seal).
Racked into secondary after primary had subsided (about 8 days). I put these in better bottles, which I understand are perfectly adapted to long conditioning of sour beers. The beer had cooled to 66 F and had dropped clear. Normally, I keep beer in the primary for two or three weeks, but I figure these should be out of the more oxygen-permeable primary buckets, and into the better bottles sooner, rather than later. Also, the brett should have plenty of time to clean up any diacetyl.
