Under the Microscope: WLP665 Flemish Ale Blend
Raise your hand if you like Cuvee des Jacobins. How about Rodenbach Grand Cru? I thought as much. West Flanders is known for having given birth to and inspired some of the most revered beers on the planet. Our WLP665 Flemish Ale Blend strain is ideally suited to making Oud Bruins and Flanders Red Ales in the spirit of the aforementioned brews. This yeast debuted earlier in the year as a Platinum Strain and, due to popular demand, will return as a year-round offering in 2013. A proprietary blend of Saccharomyces yeasts, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus, WLP665 creates the complex, funky flavor and aroma profiles that characterize the wonderful, distinctive ales of West Flanders.
