Beer Maverick
Funk Weapon #2 Yeast from Bootleg Biology

Funk Weapon #2 (BB0035C)

From: Bootleg Biology
Type: Yeast  •  Packet: Liquid
Species: Brettanomyces bruxellensis

This rare, and commercially unavailable yeast isolate is perfect for 100% Brettanomyces fermentations, especially Brett IPAs. Amplifies citrus and tropical fruit-forward hop flavors and aromas into a punchy ripeness. With extended time under CO2 pressure, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas will be more pronounced. Great for maintaining the nuance of hops in beer with better keeping qualities than a Brewer's Yeast fermentation.

Brewing Properties of Funk Weapon #2

The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.

Alcohol Tolerance
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Medium%
Attenuation
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
80-95%
Flocculation
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
Medium-Low
Optimal Temperature
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
65-75° F
(18-24° C)
