Source: Dry-hopped, Unblended Lambic Produced by a Traditional Lambic Brewery in Brussels, Belgium.
Funk Weapon #3 is a versatile culture that creates wildly different flavor and aroma profiles depending on the age of fermentation. Young fermentations produce mild musty funk and ripe tropical fruit, while older and bottle conditioned ferments show off unique flavors and aromas of strawberry, cherry and tropical candy.
This commercially unavailable yeast isolate is ideal for 100% Brettanomyces fermentations or as a secondary strain along with a phenolic Brewer's Yeast culture.
This culture has been in high demand and short supply since it was unofficially made available over the internet to homebrewers and craft brewers a few years ago.
Type: Yeast. Brettanomyces bruxellensis
Pitching Rate: Directly pitchable into 5 gallons of 1.050 or lower wort
Estimated Attenuation: 80%-95% (lower attenuation when used as primary culture)
Recommended Fermentation Temperature: Normal Ale Temperatures
* Performance information subject to change due to ongoing testing.
[You can't make every style of beer with one or two strains of brewer's yeast, so why would you only use only one or two strains for your funky beers? This is the first release in the Dusty Bottoms Collection's ongoing Funk Weapon Series of unique, rare Brettanomyces and Brett-like wild yeast cultures.]
Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.
