    I’m looking forward to this.
    Are you able to share the origin of the WLP860 – Munich Helles Yeast? Is it a strain from the Weihenstephan Yeast Bank?

      Any chance we’ll see the WLP644 Brett Brux Trois again?

        It was elevated to full-time status based on strong support from brewers like you!

      This is a fun topic, but White Labs does not generally discuss the origin of strains. Your best guesses are welcomed!

    Does this mean no more Flemish ale blend?

    Kaiser, a Sunday Session with Chris White from 2006 or 2007 suggested that many of the strains come from European yeast banks, including Weihenstephan.
