Description

The quintessential "Brett" strain used for the production of Lambic and other beers.

This is a wild yeast strain isolated from Belgian lambic beers. It produces a pie cherry-like flavor and sourness along with distinct “Brett” character. A pellicle may form in bottles or casks. To produce the classic Belgian character, this strain works best in conjunction with other yeast and lactic bacteria. It generally requires 3-6 months of aging to fully develop flavor characteristics.

Origin:
Flocculation: medium
Attenuation: very high
Temperature Range: 60-75° F (15-24° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 12% ABV

Berliner Weisse
Flanders Red Ale
Fruit Lambic
Gueuze
Straight (Unblended) Lambic

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

My preferred Brett. Lambicus
Used this in two sour brews. I like the sour cherry flavor development from this yeast. This lambicus has quite a bit less of the barnyard funk and sourness that you can get from Brett Bruxellensis (funk) or lacto and pedio (the sour).
