Brettanomyces claussenii White Labs

WLP645

Species : Brett
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 85
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 70-85
Flocculation : Low
Alcohol Tolerance : Medium-High 8-12%

Pitching/Fermentation :
General Use for Secondary Fermentations:- Souring will need maturation times around 3+ months- Low sugar requirements will be necessary for these organisms to produce acidity- Organisms will have a difficult time growing in environments below a pH of 3.5

General Use of Wild Yeast for Primary Fermentation:- General brewing pitch rates apply for primary fermentation- Fermentation timeline will be slower – closer to 15-21 days depending on the strain

General Use of Bacteria for Kettle Souring/Quick Souring methods:- The higher the pitching rate, the faster the souring- Anaerobic environment is preferred for the bacteria- Temperatures ranging from 80-95°F (26-35°C) are optimal for most Lactobacillus strains- Wort production needs to be very clean- Low amount of fermentation from yeast may occur during the souring process- The majority of the Lactobacillus will be killed after boiling.


Notes : Originally isolated from strong English stock beer, in the early 20th century. The Brett flavors produced are more subtle than WLP650 and WLP653. More aroma than flavor contribution. Fruity, pineapple like aroma. B. claussenii is closely related to B. anomalus.

Best Styles : Belgian Style Beers, Lambics

Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth. If anything beginning brewers should start with yeast starters. When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter
