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.

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).

Nice and Funky
Just used this, has that good brett funk. Nice pellicle development.
