5223-PC LACTOBACILLUS BREVIS
Species: Lactobacillus brevis
Unlike most lactic acid bacteria used in brewing, Lactobacillus brevis will tolerate higher levels of IBUs in wort. 5223-PC will produce alcohol along with lactic acid during fermentation. This strain is excellent for remixing the profile in a Lambic-style or Flanders Red Ale, or for kettle souring wort for a balanced Berliner Weisse.
Temperature Range: 60-95°F
Alcohol Tolerance: 9%
Styles: Berliner Weisse, Flanders Brown Ale/Oud Bruin, Flanders Red Ale, Fruit Lambic, Gueuze, Straight (Unblended) Lambic
