WLP564 Leeuwenhoek Saison Blend is getting close to being released from The Yeast Vault.
There is a limited time to pre-order this strain, because once it reaches production levels, the strain will be put into production. For more on The Vault, visit whitelabs.com/thevault.
This blend is special because we have used it extensively in our Tasting Room, and is particulary flavorful in saisons, dubbels, and roggenbiers.
