On 05/27: I changed the recipe to reflect that Russian River lowered the ABV by around 2%.

I will mash in at 148 for high fermentability. I will add "the Funky Bunch", which I cultured from a bottle of Beatification after it ferments down to 1.015 to 20. This beer is just slightly sour, I dont want to make a lacto bomb

Vinnie Cilurzo:

50% Brett Brux.
10% Brett Claus.
10% Brett Lambicus
30% Russian River Brewing “Funky Bunch” house yeast culture- mix of Brett, Lacto, Pedio, & other wild yeast

The RRBC house culture we call the “Funky Bunch” could be cultured from a bottle of Beatification.

You’ll see a long lag phase at the start of fermentation and then a slowing of fermentation when it gets to 1.020, from there it has to sit for a couple of months before it gets down to the gravity listed above. Depending on if you bottle or not you will need to make a decision on the final gravity. If you do bottle it has to be bottled at 1.010 or so, but, not above that or the bottles will over carbonate and the bottles might explode.
