This culture is unlike any other and offers an extraordinarily complex flavor profile resulting in balanced acidity with moderate tropical and pomme fruit aromas. This complexity allows for a range of flavor profiles that can be achieved depending on how it is blended with other yeasts or added to different beer styles.
Optimum fermentation temperature range is between 40-43℃/105-110℉ and typically sours the wort within 12-24 hours.
Classic yeast from a famous Bavarian monastery. This strain develops a creamy, malty beer profile with low sulfur production and low esters. It is a great choice for styles like traditional helles, Oktoberfest, bock, and dunkel.
April - June 2024
Clean, almost lager-like Belgian type ale yeast. Good for Belgian type pale ales and amber ales, or with blends to combine with other Belgian type yeast strains. Biscuit, ale-like aroma present. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation, which can give the yeast a lager-like flavor profile.
This specialty blend of Kveik yeast and Lactobacillus sp. has been designed to create a unique co-ferment of yeast and bacteria, resulting in a mildly fruity and tart beer. Fermenting with both yeast and bacteria at the same time provides a faster and cleaner souring profile.
TYB House Sour Blend is a complex culture developed over 10+ years of isolation work. Each lot consists largely of rotating base strains along with new isolates of Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and other wild yeasts.
Contains STA1+ components.
July - September 2024
From Staffordshire, England. Fermentation gives a mild but complex ester character. Ferments strong and dry and is good for high gravity beers. Best for all English-style ales, including bitters, milds, ESBs, porters, stouts and barleywines.
This is a blend of two Saccharomyces strains combined with some Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus. This blend results in a slight tartness and a mild funk aroma that will result in less than two weeks. Light pellicle will form because of the Brettanomyces.
A clean, crisp European lager yeast with low sulfur production. This strain originates from a very old brewery in west Belgium. Great for European-style pilsners, dark lagers, Vienna lagers, and American-style lagers.
October - December 2024
This yeast produces a clean, malty beer with pleasant ester characters that can be described as “bready.” It ferments successfully and cleanly at higher temperatures, combined with good flocculation and good attenuation.
Flanders Specialty Ale is a single strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from a fascinating Belgian producer of a wide array of traditional Belgian beer styles. This is a versatile yeast that will ferment fairly dry and produce a balanced flavor and aroma profile laced with a myriad of esters and phenols.WLP845 Fast Lager yeast was used in collab with San Diego Beer News’ Homebrew Summer and Homebrewer Matthew Smiley to scale his Czech Pils recipe to our system.
