BB0034A – Funk Weapon™ Series: #1

Availability: Limited

Source: West Flanders, Belgium brewery specializing in funky, sour, mixed-fermentation beers.

This rare, and commercially unavailable yeast isolate, produces pungent horse blanket and fresh leather aromas. Perfect for breaking out the funk in farmhouse-style beers.

Funk Weapon #1 is featured in the Trinity & Epic Brewing collaboration Wild Apple Saison, and Trinity’s Magical Brettanomyces Tour #4.

[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.]

Product Category: Dusty Bottoms Collection™

The Dusty Bottoms Collection™ is our ode to unique and hard to find cultures sourced from commercial fermentations. As much as we love local yeast, there are just some flavors and aromas that can’t be reproduced by plucking yeast out of thin air.

Many of these cultures have been used for generations to make some of the most consistently wonderful beverages in the world. Whether it’s brewer’s yeast, Brettanomyces, or Lactobacillus…these aren’t Local Yeast by our definition, but certainly were local at one time.

    Certainly Funky. When fermented open, cool, and long this strain produces vinous/fruity aromas with an acid bite, similar to a sweet tart. Warmer and shorter fermentation will favor the leather/caprylic flavors that you may be looking for.
