GB144 : SWEET FLEMISH “BRETT”
GB144 Sweet Flemish “Brett” is not a Brettanomyces yeast but actually a unique strain of Saccharomyces that produces sweet tropical flavors and aromas. This yeast is a robust fermenter that makes an outstanding ale on it’s own with moderate tropical notes or an excellent addition to other ale strains in a blend to add complexity.
**7 days at 71 F in 1045 sweet wort, Ph 5.5: **
Final Ph—5.3 (2 X acidification)
7 days at 71 F in 1045 sweet wort plus 1% lactic acid Ph 3.6:
Recommended Temperature Range† 68 F to 75 F
Tasting Notes: Produces a sweet, slightly fruity profile.
Representative Styles: Saison, Brett Beer, Sour Beer, IPAs and NEIPA
* 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).
