Amalgamation is the union of our six favorite Brettanomyces isolates from our microbe library. Each isolate produces a unique bouquet of bright and fruity flavors and aromas, and the combination of all of them into one blend results in the coalescence of these unique flavors and aromas into something truly special.
This culture is a single strain of Sacchromyces cerevisiae, isolated from a Lithuanian Farmhouse mixed culture (which originally containing multiple strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Lactobacillus sp.) kindly provided by Julius Simonaitis via Lars Garshol.
Hazy Daze contains a proprietary blend of three Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains, all of which offer unique contributions to the production of crisp, hop forward beers. Expect this blend to throw bountiful amounts of peach, apricot, nectarine and grapefruit citrus esters, exhibit medium to low flocculation and reliably achieve good attenuation to produce beers with a dry and crisp character.
The next installment of our "Brett Super Blend", Amalgamation II is a blend of 5 Brettanomyces isolates: Brettanomyces bruxellensis - Strain TYB184, Brettanomyces bruxellensis - Strain TYB207, Brettanomyces bruxellensis - Strain TYB261, and both Beersel Brettanomyces Blend isolates.
Isolated from a rustic farmhouse style beer produced in the Northeastern United States, this strain is the first single strain Brettanomyces isolate we are releasing all on its own because it deserves that distinct honor.
Isolated from a unique mixed fermentation beer produced in the Midwestern United States, this Brettanomyces isolate exhibits a mild tartness and soft funk with a solid backbone of tropical fruit esters (papaya, guava, pineapple, guinep). It's great primary fermenter, but really shines in secondary fermentation following up a primary fermentation that produces a lot of flavor compounds.
The cultures in this new and unique blend include two saison-style Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates (Wallonian Farmhouse II and Wallonian Farmhouse III) and two Brettanomyces bruxellensis cultures (TYB184, TYB207).
Isolated from a uniquely crafted double IPA out of the Northeastern United States, this yeast produces a balanced fruity ester profile of peaches and light citrus that complements any aggressively hopped beer.
This blend combines Brettanomyces strains isolated from a unique beer produced in the Lochristi area in East Flanders. One strain provides a moderate funk and light fruitiness, while the other strain adds a more assertive fruitiness dominated by hints of strawberry.
