Description

Lactobacillus is used in the production in a wide array of sour beer styles as well as many food products.  This particular strain is ideal for the acidification of beers, either pre or post cerivisiae fermentation.  Can be use to kettle sour.

Lactic acid bacteria isolated from a Belgian brewery. This culture produces moderate levels of acidity and is commonly found in many types of beers including gueuze, lambics, sour brown ales and Berliner Weisse. It is always used in conjunction with S.cerevisiae and often with various wild yeast. Use in beers below 10 IBU is recommended due to the culture’s sensitivity to hop compounds.

Origin:
Flocculation:
Attenuation:
Temperature Range: 60-95° F (15-35° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 9% ABV

Styles:
Berliner Weisse
Flanders Brown Ale/Oud Bruin
Flanders Red Ale
Fruit Lambic
Gueuze
Straight (Unblended) Lambic

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.

Making a gose and have had good results with this strain. Does a nice steady job, and seems to be self limiting (doesn't get too sour) for the style.

Does what it should
This seems to do exactly what it’s supposed to. I used it in a Flanders Red (where it has provided the right amount of tart/sour), and I have some to use for a lambic I’m about to brew.

Hit or miss
I’ve had better luck with The new dry lacto. I think that the liquid version just doesn’t ship well.

If you can get it fresh I’m sure it’s great.

Sour Beer Success
Bought to make a sour mash for a Berliner Weisse. Not sure it was needed but gave my sour mash a head start to ward off development of bad bacteria.

I'm sure the yeast works fine. But im pretty sure it was dead when it arrived. Had pouch and ice pack.

We make diligent efforts to ensure temperature sensitive ingredients arrive as they should. These ice packs are a preventative measure and are not fail safe against the elements. It does help keep the yeast cooler for a longer period of time than if no ice pack was used. Please give us a call at 1-800-600-0033 or email us at info@moreflavor.com so that we can assist you. We are here to help. Cheers!
