Notes

Mash at 157 -159

Let ferment on abbey ale wlp530 at 72 degrees until gravity is at 1.016 - 1.018.

At this point transfer to secondary on to the 2 lbs zante currants. Now there are 2 options. In interviews Vinnie has said he adds a few strains of brett by itself for 6 to 8 weeks to give it a head start before pitching their house sour bugs or in our brew the Roeselare blend. You can do this or just pitch the Roeselare blend into secondary with fruit, it already contains brettanomyces.

Age for around 4 - 6 months, until the gravity has dropped to 1.008 and you are happy with the level of sourness before adding the Consecration barrel chunks (optionally you can soak your wood chunks in cabernet, Vinnie recommends Kenwood). At this point taste every two weeks until you are content with the oak flavor.
