Notes
-----
.15 American oak and .15 French Oak
The oak cubes are boiled for 30 sec in the microwave to pull out some of the flavor and aromatics, also to soften the oak flavor. Pour off the water and add just the oak cubes. add the dry hop at
the same time.

you can dry hop with .25-.50 oz.



yeast can be from a fresh Bam Biere or

White labs wlp 550 then add Wyeast
5112 - Brettanomyces bruxellensis
5335 - Lactobacillus
5526 - Brettanomyces lambicus
to the secondary.

For this recipe I was worried about percentages so the amounts for the grain is odd feel free to round up if you like.

Do you think a pitch of the Wyeast PC Lambic blend in to the 2ndry would be an acceptable substitute for the 3 differnet cultures?

The entire vial of each one(3 full vials)? How long did you leave it in the secondary after adding the cultures?
