Wyeast Brett anomalus (5110). Banked?
« on: July 15, 2019, 10:35:04 PM »
Hello, hoping the yeast bankers can help me out with this one. in 2007 I used the Wyeast Brett anomalus (5110) right before it went out of production in a beer inspired by Courage Russian Imperial. Planning to brew it again on the 10 bl system in some old cognac barrels, but can't track it down. Wyeast no longer banks it, and I've reached out to a couple smaller labs without luck. Happy to trade for beer, microbes, or currency!

I assume you've tried BSI?   Obvious, I know, but....

Just reached out, no luck from the first few labs I've tried.

Brettanomyces anomalus (WLP640) is included in White Labs vault program. I'm not sure if it's the same as 5110, but it may be worth checking out. I ordered 3 vials of WLP640, and just got shipping confirmation.

I've been following your Courage RIS clone and I am going to make my own version of your first attempt.

Thanks! Likely not the same isolate as 5110 was pulled for not actually being a B. anomalus. The WL descirption doesn't give me much hops: "Typical barnyard funk character with some fruitiness." Really looking for more of a leathery thing.
