Roeselare Ale Blend Wyeast
Species : Blend
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 65-85
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 80
Flocculation : Variable
Alcohol Tolerance : 11%
Pitching/Fermentation : Our blend of lambic cultures produce beer with a complex, earthy profile and a distinctive pie cherry sourness.
Notes : Aging up to 18 months is required for a full flavor profile and acidity to develop. Specific proportions of a Belgian style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture produce the desirable flavor components of these beers as they are brewed in West Flanders. Propagation of this culture is not recommended and will result in a change of the proportions of the individual components. This blend will produce a very dry beer due to the super-attenuative nature of the mixed cultures.
Best Styles : Lambic, Gueuze, Flanders Red Ale, Old Bruin

When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter
