Sour Weapon P (BBX0089)
From: Bootleg Biology
Type: Bacteria • Packet: Liquid • Contains Bacteria? Yes
Species: Pediococcus pentosaceus
We're excited to release our first 100% Lactic Acid Bacteria souring blend! We chose this specific blend because of its ability to sour quickly and cleanly at a range of temperatures, and due to its mild hop tolerance. While not “yeast”, this culture blend of two unique strains of Pediococcus pentosaceus is part of our LYP collection because it was sourced entirely from the wild: an anaerobic malt starter, and flowers from Murfreesboro, TN given to us by our good friend Art Whitaker. Perfect for quickly acidifying unhopped wort for kettle/”quick” sours or co-pitching with yeast.

Brewing Properties of Sour Weapon P
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
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.
