Sour Batch F08
Imperial Yeast's F08 Sour Batch is an exclusive funky blend containing a low attenuating Belgian saison yeast, Lacto, and 3 Brett yeast strains! It is a great blend for emulating lambics, Flanders reds, sour farmhouse ales and any other brew you would like to funk up.
For best results keep your IBU's under 3 in order to allow the lacto to work. Considering the components of this blend, you should allow for a long conditioning period of at least 6 months to really let the brett strains shine.
**Note: This blend contains a strain that tests positive for the STA1 gene via PCR analysis and is therefore considered to be Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus.
