WY5335 Wyeast Lactobacillus

Lactobacillus is used in the production in a wide array of sour beer styles as well as many food products.  This particular strain is ideal for the acidification of beers, either pre or post cerivisiae fermentation.  Can be use to kettle sour.

Lactic acid bacteria isolated from a Belgian brewery. This culture produces moderate levels of acidity and is commonly found in many types of beers including gueuze, lambics, sour brown ales and Berliner Weisse. It is always used in conjunction with S.cerevisiae and often with various wild yeast. Use in beers below 10 IBU is recommended due to the culture’s sensitivity to hop compounds.
