GB144 GigaYeast Sweet Flemish Brett Write a review
Produces a sweet, slightly fruity profile with just a hint of barnyard and spicy phenolics. GB144 on its own to make an all Brett beer, or in a primary fermentation with an ale yeast for a complex blended profile or in a secondary to add character during aging. Recommended for use in Saison, Brett Beers, Sour Beers, or other experimental ales.
This is a Belgian Strain which has at times been classified as Brettanomyces and other times classified as Sacchromyces. For example, White Labs names this strain (or similar variant) as Sacchromyces "Bruxellensis" Trois WL644. GigaYeast identifies it as a Brettanomyces Bruxellensis subspecies. The character is different from other Brett strains. The pineapple and tropical fruity esters lend it to use in ales outside the common Belgian Brett traditions. Bear in mind that it will attenuate much higher than a standard Sacchromyces yeast, a common trait of Brettanomyces.

How to Use
GigaYeast provides a minimum yeast cell count of 200 billion, which is a proper pitching rate for nearly all five gallon batches. These packages contain twice the amount of yeast as Wyeast or White Labs, and that means better fermentations without the need for a starter.
