Omega Yeast Brettanomyces Blend #2 : BIT O' FUNK ( OYL-211)
Blend #1 (OYL-210) contains one Brett-famous brewery strain plus one Sacch strain for huge tropical fruit aroma with a wide temp range. Very dry, mild funk and low acid. Blend #2 (OYL-211) contains the Sacch strain from Blend #1 and is spiked with brux for development of moderate funk in secondary; may take 3+ months to emerge. Blend #3 (OYL-212) contains the one Sacch strain from Blend #1 and is spiked with brux, lambicus, two Brett isolates from a Brett-famous brewery, and two Brett isolates from an “intense” Belgian source, for a funky, fruity, complex, 8-strain composition.
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.
Flocculation: Very Low
