From: Omega Yeast
Type: Blend • Packet: Liquid • Contains Bacteria? Yes
Species: Pediococcus brevis, plantarum
This modestly hop tolerant Pedio strain produces a clean lactic tang over time. The strain can produce diacetyl so it is often paired with one or more Brett strains (to consume the diacetyl). While more hop tolerant than the Lacto Blend (OYL-605), IBUs over 5-10 IBU may inhibit souring. Souring time can vary depending on IBU level.
Brewing Properties of PEDIOCOCCUS
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.
