Lallemand WildBrew™ Philly Sour - 11g
WildBrew™ Philly Sour is a unique species of Lachancea selected from nature by the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, PA, USA.
Philly Sour produces moderate amounts of lactic acid in addition to ethanol in one simple fermentation step. This first yeast in the WildBrew™ series is a great choice for innovative, sessionable sour beers with refreshing acidity and notes of stone fruit. With high attenuation, high flocculation, and good head retention, WildBrew™ Philly Sour is an ideal yeast for traditional styles such as Berliner Weiss, Gose, American Lambic Style, American Wild Ales and its resistance to hops make it perfect for Sour IPA’s.

Worked as stated. A higher temp of 75 plus speeds up the process. Mid 3 PH with a tart fruity flavor. 1 pk directly pitched into 5 gallons of 1.040 wort. I can't imagine doing a kettle sour again after this 1 step sour yeast.
I can't say how effective this is for beer but I used it for mead. It gives off a good tart end product, which I was looking for, while still fermenting out the sugars and finishing out smooth. Took about a week or so to ferment to 1.012 and there was a good amount of head.
Nice sour profile very easy to use ...highly recommend
I used this to make a Berliner Weise with Medusa hops. It soured nicely in just over a week. I did not take a PH reading, but the beer feels like a home run to me!
Thought it was great. All in one souring. Happy
