WLP644 Saccharomyces Bruxellensis Trois - White Labs Yeast
This strain, used traditionally for wild yeast-like fermentations, produces a slightly tart beer with delicate characteristics of mango and pineapple. Can also be used to produce effervescence when bottle-conditioning.
(Formerly named Brettanomyces bruxellensis Trois)
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.

I used this yeast strain to make a hazy IPA from the Northern Brewer Kit, "Fruit Bazooka". The beer turned out really well. There's a mild 'Belgium-y' flavor that compliments the fruity-hoppy-aromatic characteristics of a NE-IPA!
A couple of things to be aware of:
Make at least a 1 liter starter for anything larger than 1.05 specific gravity.
The fermentation is intense, so be prepared for a bunch of foaming and blow-off.
This yeast needs to ferment warm, somewhere in the low 80˚ F, so make sure to have the appropriate means of maintaining that temperature for the duration of the fermentation.
I use this in my Gose and it works great. Co-pitched with OYL605 lacto blend after 24 hrs, ferment low 70s and you’ve got a great Gose in probably less than two weeks (I give it two weeks to clean up a little).
This was the least invasive yeast I've used in a homebrew. Made a smooth and powerful beer but didn't ever try to overtake the flavor. Will definitely be using again.

Used this with all grain Fruit Bazooka with a 1L starter and turned out fantastic! Fun to see yeasts now with a higher fermentation temperature range!
