Description

Turn up the tang with Omega's Lactobacillus Blend. Lacto brevis and plantarum come together for a blend that is clean and reliable with a wide temperature range. The plantarum, isolated in collaboration with Marz Community Brewing, sours efficiently at lower temperatures. Maximum souring develops typically within 48 hours with no need to hold high temperatures as it is efficient at the lower end of its range. Note also that the blend is extremely hop sensitive, so make sure to add only to unhopped wort.

Please Note: For best results we Always recommend ordering an Ice Pack with your liquid yeast. Ice Packs can be found below in the "You might Also Need" section.

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.

Never Fails Me
Have been making kettle sours for years. This has never ever failed me. Only have to follow simple directions. Pitch directly into non-hopped wort at max 95F. Maintain temp 90-95. Never made a starter, seems like unnecessary complication. 3.X pH in 2-3 days every time. Very nice flavor profile.

Quality yeast
Worked exactly how I wanted it to. Got down to my desired pH within 24 hours( about 3.4-3.5 in my case). Nice acid profile with it as well. My Gose came out great!

Sour beer
This will sour your wort. I stepped the pack up in a 1600 ml starter, much like a yeast starter, but kept at 94 F with a heat mat. Pitched the starter into 11 gallons of unhopped 1.040 wheat/barley wort. After two warm days, the wort was nicely sour, so I reboiled it with hops, chilled and pitched two packs of US-05. It seems to be fermenting nicely now. Hoping for a nice Berliner Weisse here.
