Under the Microscope: WLP644 Brettanomyces bruxellensis Trois

29 Nov

Under the Microscope is a new series of Yeastbuddy posts that highlight specific (usually new or seasonal) White Labs strains.

The cat is out of the bag, so to speak, with wild ales, gueuzes, lambics and sours. The demand and desire for funky, sour beers has never been higher- just ask a bottle shop that’s trying to stock Cantillon, or the guy who traveled hours for the release of the newest batch of Lost Abbey’s Cable Car. In 2012, we introduced WLP644 Brettanomyces bruxellensis Trois and it proved to be one of our most popular Platinum Series strains of the year. 2013 will see Brett trois added to our year-round offerings due to popular demand. Brett trois is a versatile Belgian strain that works great in primary fermentation, producing tropical flavors and the signature funky bite that people look for in wild ales. The strain is perfectly suited for 100% brett beers (check out this 100% Brett IPA brewed by our friend The Mad Fermentationist), and works well in bottle conditioning, producing consistent effervescence when added during bottling. So sour brew fanatics rejoice, your homebrewing yeast options just got funkier.
