Product Details

Wild yeast isolated from Belgian lambic beers. Produces a pie cherry like flavor and sourness along with distinct Brett character. Ferments best in worts with reduced pH after primary fermentation has begun, and may form a pellicle in bottles or casks. Works best in conjunction with other yeast and lactic bacteria to produce the classic Belgian character. Generally requires 3-6 months of aging to fully develop flavor characteristics. Apparent attenuation: Flocculation: medium. Optimum temp: 60°-75° F

What is the cell count of the Wyeast Brett cultures? I can't find that info anywhere. I'm assuming it's lower than the standard ale smack packs, though I've also heard that it's higher than the White Labs brett cultures.
