  • Description
  • Q and A

Wyeast's Belgian lambic blend is a very unique and complex blend of belgian ale yeast, lactobacillus, pediococcus, a sherry strain, and two brettanomyces strains. With all these different yeast and bacteria in one conveneint smack pack, brewers are sure to produce Belgian-style lambic beers and other traditional sours of unsurpassed quality. Because of genetic drift over time, it is not recommended to collect and reculture this blend if a consistent end product is desired. This blend is also known to be very highly attenuative, and beers often finish extremely dry, especially with extended conditioning times. A great choice in traditional Belgian style beers that are traditionally spontaneously fermented.

Warm Weather Shipping Notice

During the hot summer months we include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders, but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate.
