Wyeast 3191 Berliner Weisse Blend
Beer Styles: Berliner Weisse, Lambics, Geuze, Fruit Lambic, Flanders Red Ale Profile: This blend includes a German ale strain with low ester formation and a dry, crisp finish. The Lactobacillus included produces moderate levels of acidity. The unique Brettanomyces strain imparts a critical earthy characteristic that is indicative of a true Berliner Weisse. When this blend is used, expect a slow start to fermentation as the yeast and bacteria in the blend is balanced to allow proper acid production. It generally requires 3-6 months of aging to fully develop flavour characteristics. Use this blend with worts containing extremely low hopping rates.
