Hey Brent, if you are interested in Brett, check these 2 sites:
http://www.brettanomycesproject.com/

http://www.crookedstave.com/

This guy (Chad Yakobson) did his MSc Thesis on brewing with Brettanomyces. You can read find his thesis at the first link. Then he started a brewery, brewing with mostly 100% Brett. Pretty good stuff.

Here is a great talk on brewing Berliner Weisse... it talks about how to get some good sour flavour with Lactobaccilus. Good video!
