One Brett-famous Colorado brewery strain, plus a strain that was formerly classified as Brett (but are now known to be Saccharomyces), result in huge tropical fruit aromas that mingle well with fruity aroma hops. Note that aroma intensity fades a bit during conditioning. Brett Blend #1: Where Da Funk? has a wide temperature range, finishes very dry, and leaves neither much funk nor much body (consider adding flaked oats for body). Mild funk level and low acidity is consistent even with extended aging
This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation.

Funktown Pale Ale is a blend of our Vermont Ale strain and a unique strain of STA1 + Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is well suited for primary fermentation. The combination of citrus, peach, pineapple and mango esters produce a unique flavor and aroma profile that is fruit-forward and complements any hop-forward beer.
Brett Blend #2: Bit O’ Funk contains the two Saccharomyces strains from Brett Blend #1 (OYL-210) for primary fermentation and is spiked with Brettanomyces bruxellensis for development of classic, funkforward Brett character during secondary fermentation. The bit ‘o funkiness will take extended time to develop (3 months or more.)
Brett Blend #3: Bring on Da Funk consists of two Saccharomyces strains from Brett Blend #1 (OYL-210) spiked with both Brettanomyces bruxellensis and Brettanomyces lambicus, plus two additional Brettanomyces isolates from a Brett-famous Colorado brewery, plus two Brett isolates from an “intense” Belgian source to equal a funky, fruity, complex 8-strain...
