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.

5223-PC Lactobacillus brevis creates remarkable Fruit Lambics and Berliner Weisses, making this strain quintessential for Spring. Working with 5223-PC can be challenging and timely; therefore, brewers need to work patiently for proper aging. Worth the wait when you pair dry Fruit Lambic with prosciutto and pear or ceviche and a pint of Gueuze.

Bacteria Characteristics:

  • Temp Range: 60-95°F
  • ABV Tolerance: 9%

Recommended Styles:

  • Lambic
  • Gueze
