Brettanomyces/Lactic Cultures

Unique and funky flavors are a hallmark of these critters. Lactobacillus is also the culture responsible for the refreshing and tart German style, Berliner Weisse.

    Brettanomyces Bruxellensi..

    $7.39

    A wild yeast that will provide medium intensity Brett flavors. Produces the classic “sweaty horse hair” character [mmm!yum! ] found in many Lambic beers. Ferments best in worts with lower pH after the primary fermentation has begun. Produces some acidity and may form a pellicle (thick top coating) in the fermenter. Generally requires aging for 3-6 months for flavor to develop fully.

  • Servomyces Yeast Nutrient..

    Servomyces Yeast Nutrient..

    $12.99

    Add servomyces to your beer to increase yeast health because healthy yeast make better tasting beer. Other benefits include a decrease in fermentation time and increased alcohol potential. Servomyces stimulates the uptake of maltose which results in drier beer with higher alcohol yields. It is made by saturating beer yeast with zinc and then drying it. Zinc is a missing nutrient in wort and is more readily absorbed from dead yeast cells than by adding it directly as a mineral. Originally available only to professional brewers, this wonderful yeast nutrient is now to the homebrewing community, thanks to White Labs and Lallemand.

    While it is not a cure-all pill for your brew, it offers the serious home brewer an easy, effective way to help ensure yeast health. Servomyces was developed in Germany at the Weihenstephan brewing school and the Munich University, so of course it conforms to the German Purity Law! Contains 6 capsules good for 5 gallons of wort each. Add Servo in the last 10 minutes of the boil. If your ferment does not require a boil ( as in a mead), open the capsule and add the Servomyces directly.
