Additionally, WildBrew™ Helveticus Pitch will deliver unmatched consistency, effortless application, fully assured performance and unparalleled purity for brewing the sour beer style of your choice.

works well
used 5g for a 8 gallon batch which is slightly more than the 10g/hl but worked out great. 3.30 ph after ~30 hours.
