This blend creates an amazing complex, sour beer with fruity cherry esters. Fermenting in the presence of 7-10 IBUs will cause the fermentation to complete much more quickly but will slow the souring — expect to wait 3-4 months for significant souring. Fermenting with zero or less than 5 IBUs will allow souring to happen much faster (within two weeks) but will cause the fermentation to take up to 4 weeks to complete.

A Note on Shipping Liquid Yeast: Brewing yeast is not returnable because it is highly perishable. We ship all of our yeasts with an ice pack to help prevent the yeast from incuring any damage due to raises in temperature during shipping. We have a variety of shipping options available for you to choose from. If you are concerned about shipping time, you can also purchase your yeast separately from other items in your cart to help ensure your yeast arrives quickly and safely, or ask for an additional icepack to be shipped with your yeast. The majority of our customers do not have any problems with ground shipping most months out of the year, but if you are in a warm climate far from us, we want to make you aware of your options.
