Will do ;)
I had 1 gallon of extra wort, put it in a gallon jug and I'm fermenting it with Brett-C alone.  I also have WL brett brux that I will try soon.  

How did your Brett PA turned out in the end?  Between B and L which one did you prefer?  Have you ever tried Anomalus?

I prefer B over L, but even better was the combination of the two (Brett PA). I have not tried Anomolus, but I would like to get my hands on some.

I'm really enjoying the all Brett beers. Now I plan to start using some Brett in darker and higher gravity beers. I'm also in the market for an oak barrel to age Brett beers.

Tomorrow though I plan to brew a Brett B&L + Duval strain of Sacch. I will pitch the Brett first and wait until I start to see lots of activity and then pitch the Duval right away(actuall it's http://www.brewingscience.com/ B-88 / Breendonk Ale yeast, which I'm told is a Duval strain). I will do this for two reasons; 1. I like the esters produced when Brett has lots of maltose to munch on (totally different from the secondary pitched Brett beers), and 2. When you pitch Brett as primary I find it attenuates in a timeline similar to Sacch and I don't have to wait 6 to 12 months.

Good to know B+L was a winner.   I was actually thinking of doing the same thing as you combining 2 brett+sacch but I was thinking using 3522 instead.  If you find half or quarter barrels let me know, I would be interested in those sizes, full barrel is way too much for me.

3522 is my favorite strain of Sacch. I just didn't have any and did have Duvel.

I'll let you know about the barrels, but I'm dealing with wineries, so unlikely to find smaller.
