WYEAST STRAIN: 5112 | Brettanomyces Bruxellensis™
This strain of wild yeast was isolated from brewery cultures in the Brussels region of Belgium. It produces the classic “sweaty horse blanket” character of indigenous beers such as gueuze, lambics and sour browns and may form a pellicle in bottles or casks. The strain is generally used in conjunction with S. cerevisiae, as well as other wild yeast and lactic bacteria. At least 3-6 months aging is generally required for flavor to fully develop.

Liquid Yeast Shipping Policy
It's hot down south, so all liquid yeast orders are shipped with an insulated pouch and two free ice packs. Liquid yeast is shipped to minimize transit time. If you order liquid yeast late in the week with a shipping method that would span the weekend we will hold your order to ship Monday. We recommend a 1 or 2 day shipping time on all liquid yeast orders. USPS Priority Mail is 2 day shipping to most of the Continental US. Liquid yeast is guaranteed viable if it spends no more than 2 days in shipping.
Liquid Yeast Warranty
As long as Liquid Yeast spends a maximum of two days in transit it is guaranteed viable and warrantied. If you receive warrantied yeast from us that does not ferment simply e-mail email@example.com to receive a replacement pack or refund. Please include the batch code, manufacturer date, your original gravity reading and a second gravity reading taken at least three days after pitching. A lack of swelling in your activator pack does not indicate non-viable yeast. More information on liquid yeast and frequently asked questions can be found on Wyeast's Website.
