Description

WLP4675 - Farmhouse Sour Ale

Farmhouse Sour Ale is a blend of Saccharomyces and Lactobacillus. It was formulated for brewers wishing to create a saison with a balanced acid profile that complements the complex esters of our unique farmhouse/saison yeast strains, but without the Brettanomyces funk.

This blend contains two farmhouse/saison Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates, Lactobacillus brevis, and Lactobacillus delbreuckii. The two Saccharomyces strains will combine to create a delightful ester profile of grapefruit and orange zest, accompanied by a mild earthiness and spiciness. The two Lactobacillus strains will produce a balanced acid profile, given a suitable supply of accessible carbohydrates that remain after the bulk of fermentation has been completed by Saccharomyces.

Expect this blend to take 1-3 months to begin creating appreciable levels of acidity, depending primarily upon fermentation temperature and the IBU. Higher fermentation temperatures and lower (0-5) IBU will produce elevated levels of acidity. Lower fermentation temperatures and higher (10+) IBU will produce lower levels of acidity.


Cell Count: ~53 billion cells/vial.

Attenuation 80%-100% - (Diastatic Strain)
Flocculation Medium-Low
Optimum Temperature 21.1°C - 25.5°C




Directions:
Use 1 vial per 19L of beer.
Select a strain/blend best suited for your fermentation. 
Store this vial in refrigerator, and remove 3-6 hours priot to use. 
Shake vial well to re-suspend, open cap carefully, add to 19L of aerated/oxygenated wort at 21C. Keep at this temperature until fermentation begins, and then change to desired fermentation temperature. 
One vial will usually start fermentation in 5-15 hours.
Wild yeast ,bacteria and blends may take longer.
The keys to a quick start to fermentation are good aeration / oxygenation and temperature of ~21C at all times until fermentation begins.
If the O.G. is over 1.070
If the yeast is past its 'best before' date
or if a faster start to fermentation is desired, a starter culture can be made.
Starters are not recommended with blends as the proportions of different organisms can be altered.
Best before date is 4 months after bottling.
