A blend of two Lactobacillus species, L. brevis and L. plantarum. This blend is designed to be usable at a wide range of temperatures, and is especially suited for kettle souring/sour worting. We recommend pre-acidifying wort to 4.5 with lactic acid, then pitching the Lactobacillus blend in a CO2-purged kettle or fermentor at 32-42ºC.
Do I need to make a starter?
The pitch rate provided is suitable for primary fermentation of standard gravity beers (<1.065 SG). However, for high gravity beers or when the yeast is close to or past the expiry date, we do recommend making a yeast starter.
