Sweet Flemish Brett

GB144


Description Brettanomyces bruxellensis sp.
(Probable) Brew with GB144 on its own to make an all Brett beer, in a primary fermentation with an ale yeast for a complex blended profile or in a secondary to add character during aging.

**7 days at 71 F in 1045 sweet wort, Ph 5.5: **

Apparent Attenuation–83%

ABV—5.0%

Final Ph—5.3 (2 X acidification)

7 days at 71 F in 1045 sweet wort plus 1% lactic acid Ph 3.6:

Apparent Attenuation–84%

ABV—5.1%


Recommended Temperature Range† 68 F to 75 F
Tasting Notes Produces a sweet, slightly fruity profile with just a hint of barnyard and spicy phenolics

Representative Styles Saison, Brett Beer, Sour Beer


* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.

† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
