Wyeast 3763 Roeselare Blend Yeast  
$6.99 Out of stock
Product Description

A blend of lambic cultures produces beer with a complex, earthy profile and a distinctive pie cherry sourness. Aging up to 18 months is required for a full flavor profile and acidity to develop. Specific proportions of a Belgian style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture produce the desirable flavor components of these beers as they are brewed in West Flanders. Propagation of this culture is not recommended and will result in a change of the proportions of the individual components. This blend will produce a very dry beer due to the super-attenuative nature of the mixed cultures.

 

General Info

  • Flocculation: Variable
  • Attenuation: 80%+
  • Temperature Range: 65-85F, 18-30C
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 11% ABV

  • Lambics
  • Geuze
