Wyeast 3191-PC Berliner Weisse Blend
Private Collection Strain - Seasonal Availability Only
Species - Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Brttanomyces and Lactobacillus Blend
This blend includes a German ale strain with low ester formation and a dry, crisp finish. The Lactobacillus included produces moderate levels of acidity. The unique Brettanomyces strain imparts a critical earthy characteristic that is indicative of a true Berliner Weisse. When this blend is used, expect a slow start to fermentation as the yeast and bacteria in the blend is balanced to allow proper acid production. It generally requires 3-6 months of aging to fully develop flavor characteristics. Use this blend with worts containing extremely low hopping rates.

Ok, back to sours! This is hands down, by far my favorite pre-blended berliner yeast available, and I wish they’d make it a year round strain! It already has everything you need, including a brett strain for a little added complexity.
Last time we used this, we did a mango berliner that even I liked, which is saying something since you all know I’d rather brew a sour than drink it! Try it with our Insane Wizard kit and your favorite fruit puree, and give it an extra month in the fermenter to let a little bit of that dank, brett-y character to develop!
