Wyeast 3278 Belgian Lambic Blend
What it does :
The Wyeast 3278 Belgian Lambic Blend yeast strain produces a rich, earthy flavor profile. This strain is a slightly flocculent yeast that results in a cloudy beer. This yeast strain is moderately attenuative. You can expect it to ferment 70 to 80 percent of the fermentable sugars in your wort. It results in an acidic finish.
What it is:
This is a top-fermenting, wild yeast strain. This product is a blend of yeast and bacteria cultures for making lambic-style ales. The specific components of this blend are a Belgian-style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture. This blend was developed to provide the flavor elements expected in these unique West Flanders ales.
How it works:
After the boil is complete, cool your wort temperature down to be at or near 75 F (23.9 C). Then, you can add this yeast to begin the primary fermentation of your beer.
The amount of pitching yeast needed for a 5 gallon (18.9 liter) batch will vary based on the gravity target for your recipe. A starter is strongly recommended for an original gravity at or above 1.080.
You should prepare your yeast sample for pitching into the wort. A liquid yeast slurry typically requires that you begin activating the culture several hours before use. Follow typical brewing sanitation practices to ensure your fermentation produces the expected results. Unwanted bacterial contamination at the fermentation stage will undo all your hard work in getting your brew to this step of the process.
