Needs a 10 day starter to build lacto up
I've been using this yeast for a while. I've even compared this to the wyeast version. This is by far better. The trick is to build a 10 day starter to build up the lacto. I always see results within 8-10 days. Usually ready to go after 3 weeks. Great for cascade clones!

Only slightly sour after 4 months
I used this blend in an attempt at a traditional Berliner Weisse and it has worked OK so far. I'll reserve judgement for another few months, but after 4 months, I still don't have the level of acidity that I am looking for.

For reference, my method was as follows: Used a 15min boil, and then tossed a handful of un-boiled grains into the wort at about 100degF and let cool to room temp and sit for two days before pitching the WLP630 blend. Fermented in primary and then bottled after 4 weeks. After 3 months in bottles, the beer is only slightly tart.

Not Sour Enough
I used this yeast for a Berliner-Weisse and it didn't sour nearly enough to my liking. I used fermentation temperature control and left the beer on the yeast for a while checking it often. It just didn't sour much at all. You are better off innoculating with bacteria and pitching a german yeast. If you don't want much sourness in your Berliner-Weisse, then there is nothing wrong with this yeast.
