Lactobacillus brevis from Wyeast is ideal for use in the following beer styles: Berliner Weisse, Geuze, Flemish Red & Brown Ales, American Sour Ales.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months or if ordering from warmer climates. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Unlike most lactic acid bacteria used in brewing, Lactobacillus brevis will tolerate higher levels of IBUs in wort. 5223 will produce alcohol along with lactic acid during fermentation. Excellent for remixing the profile in a Lambic-style or Flanders sour ale, or for kettle souring wort for a balanced Berliner Weisse.
