    The Yeast Bay - Simonaitis Lithuanian Farmhouse Yeast

    This culture is a single strain of Saccharomyces 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 (click here for Lars' blog).

    Across a wide temperature range this culture will throw an intriguing mix of orange, tropical fruit and stone fruit esters that is reminiscent of POG Juice (passionfruit, orange, guava) and produces distinct spicy/earthy/herbal undertones.

    While not a “kveik” strain, it handles high temperatures and high gravity worts well, with an upper fermentation temperature of 35 ºC and a high alcohol tolerance (>10%).

    White Labs WLP518 Opshaug Kveik Ale Yeast®

    Sourced from our friend Lars Marius Garshol, this kveik strain was isolated from a mixed culture which belonged to Harald Opshaug, a farmhouse brewer in Stranda, Norway. This strain was originally used in the 1990s to produce several kornøl-style beers. It is a clean fermenting yeast and has tolerated temperatures up to 95°F (35°C) while finishing fermentation within three to four days.

    The hop-forward, clean characteristics of this strain make it ideal for IPAs and pale ales.

    The Yeast Bay - Melange Sour Blend

    If you dig using a diverse array of unique organisms to create balanced sour beers, this delightful medley of microbes is sure to please! Mélange is our most varied mix of fermentative organisms, intended for use in the production of sour beers in which a balance of funk and sourness is desired. This blend contains two Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates, Saccharomyces fermentati, five Brettanomyces isolates, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus delbreuckii and Pediococcus damnosus. If you want acidity quickly, we recommend keeping the IBU low (0-5 IBU), starting with a fermentation temperature of 70-72 ºF for the first few days and then raising the temperature to 75-80 ºF to encourage development of sourness (Lactobacillus, Pediococcus). For a slower developing beer that exhibits a rounded balance of funk (Brettanomyces) and sourness we recommend ~5-10 IBU, mashing on the high end, fermenting at 68 ºF and holding at that temperature for an extended period of time. Approximately 29 bilion cells/vial.

    White Labs WLP677 Lactobacillus Delbrueckii Bacteria

    This lactic acid bacteria produces moderate levels of acidity and sour flavors found in lambics, Berliner Weisse, sour brown ales and gueze.

    Our bacteria strains are now being propagated in an optimized, strain-specific growth media. This proprietary media, which is lighter in color, allows for better growth and viability of our pure cultures resulting in higher cell concentrations. Due to the improved cell concentration, we suggest utilizing the below pitch rate:

    Lactobacillus: contains >400 million cells/mL
    Recommended Pitch Rates:
              Secondary: 1 Liter per 10hL
              Primary (kettle sour): 1 Liter per 5hL

    *White Labs recommends pitching based on intended dosage rates as opposed to actual cell concentrations since these can vary slightly.
