Saison/Brettanomyces Blend (WLP4626)
From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
This blend combines one of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains from the Saison Blend and two unique Brettanomyces isolates from our yeast library. The Saccharomyces strain is a strong attenuator that produces a delightful ester profile of grapefruit and orange zest and imparts a long, dry and earthy finish to the beer. The Brettanomyces strains are both good attenuators that produce some fruity esters and mild funk, and add a bright character to the beer. The resulting beer is dry with balanced ester and phenolic character.
Brewing Properties of Saison/Brettanomyces Blend
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.
