SafSour LB-1™ is an excellent choice for producing consistent, repeatable Goses, Berliner Weisses and other sour ales. A heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria (L. brevis), SafSour LB-1™ has been selected by Fermentis specifically for its ability to provide a precise acidity related to the combined production of lactic and acetic acids. SafSour LB 1™ also reveals a neutral aromatic profile, respecting the aromatic signature of the yeast in the final product.

  • Acidifies non-hopped wort within 30h–48h at a temperature of 89.6°F +/- 9°F (32°C +/-5°C) .
  • As a heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria, SafSour LB-1 produces lactic acid and acetic acid.
  • SafSour LB-1 presents a low tolerance towards iso alpha acids (half of growth is inhibited, IC50 of 10 ppm).
  • Typically reaches a final pH of 3.6–3.9

It is recommended to pitch directly into the non-hopped wort at the temperature of 32°C (+/- 5°C).

An oxygenation rate of 13 ppm helps achieve a balanced acetic/lactic profile.
