My suggestion would be either to brew it as is ...
The Brett makes the beer seem dryer when the FG is relatively high. I've got a 1.064 beer that I mashed at 156Â° that fermented to 1.018 with lager yeast. I added the Brett at kegging and let the Brett carbonate the beer in the keg as a secondary fermentation. The Brett only brought it down to 1.014 but it seems really dry.
I think the Brett needs more oxygen to get it really drier (barrel fermentation or carboy with wooden dowel, etc.).
Has anyone ever taken a final gravity on Orval?
