Lactobacillus brevis - Strain TYB282 (WLP4681)
From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Bacteria • Packet: Liquid • Contains Bacteria? Yes
Species: Lactobacillus brevis
TYB282 is a single strain of Lactobacillus brevis isolated out of an unintentionally soured golden ale produced by a Mexican craft brewery. This strain produces a nice, clean lactic acidity (down to ~pH 3.16-3.18) in unhopped wort within 36 hours at a temperature of ~72-77 °F. The higher the temperature up to 90 °F, the faster the acid production. This is a great strain for kettle souring, but really shines in souring fermented beer as a result of its hop tolerance (15-20 IBU).
Brewing Properties of Lactobacillus brevis - Strain TYB282
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.
