The Yeast Bay - Brettanomyces Bruxellensis - Strain TYB184 (Out of Date)
Brettanomyces Bruxellensis - TYB184 (Out of Date)
Moderate acid and mild barnyard character.
Isolated from a rustic farmhouse style beer produced in the Northeastern United States, this strain is the first single strain Brettanomyces isolate released by The Yeast Bay. Isolate TYB184 is literally the 184th isolate of yeast/bacteria that has made it through primary fermentation trials, was assigned an isolate number and carried into larger scale fermentation evaluation since 2013. Sequencing results revealed that it's Brettanomyces bruxellensis.
This isolate is attenuative produces a moderate acidic-like character and an ester profile of lemon/pineapple. Another notable characteristic of this isolate is the mild barnyard character it produces that doesn't take over the profile; rather, it balances the ester profile. The unique character balance in this strain is what makes it well suited for use on its own, in both primary and secondary fermentation. This strain can be slow to take off and finish in primary fermentation, and may require additional time for fermentation to complete. We recommend co-fermentation with any of our Belgian/Saison/Farmhouse cultures, and we've had particular success using along side the Northeastern Abbey and Saison Blend.
Attenuation: 82 - 88%
Flocculation: Medium - Low
Optimum Ferm Temp: 22 - 28ºC
Liquid Yeasts are shipped with ice in an insulated bag. We recommend using express post to ensure that the yeast arrives in peak condition.
This Yeast has a best before date of //. The yeast is still viable, but we recommend the use of a starter to reach optimal pitching rates
