Brett Blend #2 Bit O' Funk OYL-211
Omega Yeast's OYL-211 Brett Blend #2: Bit O' Funk is a blend that has been created from two Saccharomyces strains contained in Brett Blend #1: Where da Funk? OYL-210, that then gets spiked with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. The use of the Saccharomyces strains is for primary fermentation development, while the Brettanomyces strain is added for the development of the classic, funk-forward Brett character desired during secondary fermentation.
This bit o' funkiness will take an extended time to develop, 3 months or more, and is important to keep in mind when choosing this strain.
Flocculation: Very Low
Optimal Temperature Range: 68-80F
Alcohol Tolerance: 11%
This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation.
