Description

  • 5112 is a strain of wild yeast that was isolated from brewery cultures in the Brussels region of Belgium
  • Produces the classic “sweaty horse blanket” character of indigenous beers such as gueuze, lambics and sour browns
  • Activator Smack-Pack System™ "proofs" the yeast and shortens lag time when it hits your wort
  • When smacked, the Activator™ packet releases sugars and nutrients to initiate the culture's metabolism
  • Wyeast has been a pioneer in craft brewing for over 35 years and is committed to creating the finest fermentation products available
  • Although beneficial, cultures do not need to be activated prior to inoculation

This strain of wild yeast was isolated from brewery cultures in the Brussels region of Belgium. It produces the classic “sweaty horse blanket” character of indigenous beers such as gueuze, lambics and sour browns and may form a pellicle in bottles or casks. The strain is generally used in conjunction with S. cerevisiae, as well as other wild yeast and lactic bacteria. At least 3-6 months aging is generally required for flavor to fully develop.

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.
