L. brevis is not as hop sensitive as L. plantarum, but it is heterofermentative (meaning it produces CO2 and ehtanol/acetate besides lactate). 

It is a very reliable bacterium for the production of pleasant sour wort. 

The optimal temperature is a little lower than L. plantarum. A combination of both L. brevis and L. plantarum (and L. acidophilus and L. delbrueckii) gives the brewer more activity at a broader temperature range resulting in a more reliable souring. 

L. brevis is a probiotic organims and is also known as Levilactobacillus brevis.

A perfect substitution for WHite Labs WLP672 Lactobacillus brevis
