    Looking to brew something similar to Orval. I'm mostly interested in Orval's brewing process and ingredients.

    I know it is dry hopped, but with what hop?

    Also, it is conditioned in the bottle with Brett, correct? What is the beer fermented with initially before bottle conditioning? Is it 100% Brett all the way through?

    Once I gather some more info, I'll write up a recipe for feedback.

    I thought they added the brett at bottling. Either way should work.

    Let's hear how this clone turns out. I'm always interested in distinctive clones of amazing beers. Who wants another Heady or Pliny clone? Ugh
