WLP644 Saccharomyces "Bruxellensis" Trois
« on: January 29, 2022, 09:05:41 am »
This yeast used to be a hot topic when it was thought to be Brett based. I haven't seen much about it after it was determined to be saccharomyces. Do people still brew with it? Is it a good yeast but got overrun by the hazy IPA craze? Other thoughts?

I've used it several times for IPAs. That was a few years ago, but I remember it well. I think it's a good strain. What I got out of it was exactly as the White Lab's description says: delicate mango and pineapple, slight tartness. No phenolics, just fruitiness. Dry hopping can overwhelm and somewhat negate the fruit esters, though. Even though it's STA1 positive, the attenuation I got was on par with Chico.

Imperial Yeast has this strain sold as Citrus. I have used their blend sold as Dry Hop, which includes this strain. It is one of my favorite IPA strains. It produces a slightly tart finish with a decent amount of esters. I usually spilt my NEIPA batches and use this blend in one, and London III in the other.
