Lambic Beer Yeast and Bacteria

Lambic beers are a unique class of beers that have a complexity unlike anything else in the beer making word. Lambics are traditionally made by exposing the wort (un-fermented beer) to the ambient air and allowing the local indigenous microorganisms to become established and ferment the beer. It just so happens that the region supports a blend of Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus that is ideal for making Lambic beers! These microorganisms are necessary to create the desired complexity and tartness that defines Lambic beer making.

Can I Get These Same Cultures?:

Yes, you can! Fortunately, for those of us living outside of this specialized region, these various microorganisms have been cultured and are now available. MoreBeer! has both individual cultures and a pre-made blend to cover all of your Lambic yeast and bacteria needs.
