Brewer’s Best Sours Featuring Philly Sour Yeast
Be the first to try our new Brewer’s Best Sours extract kits! Brewer’s Best Sours are a tart and tasty treat for any time of year. These sour recipes are easy to craft and do not require traditional long aging periods or the use of the kettle souring method. These kits feature Lallemand’s Philly Sour yeast, which was discovered by the University of the Sciences right here in Philly!
Our three new Brewer’s Best Sour extract kits now in stock are:
• Pineapple Tart Sour Ale
• Pucker Peach Sour Ale
• Sour Mango Pale Ale

Verdant IPA Yeast
Selected in collaboration with Verdant Brewing in the UK, it’s a highly versatile strain and is well suited for a variety of styles including NEIPA, English IPA, American Pale, English Bitters, Sweet stouts and Sours.
OMEGA Yeasts: Sundew and Bonanza
In addition to all your favorite Omega yeasts, we have Sundew and Bonanza in stock.
Sundew’s ripe strawberry, passion fruit, pear, and stone fruit combine to emphasize desirable notes in modern fruity hops. This Omega Yeast original strain was inspired by its parental strain’s fruit esters, which were originally obscured by Belgian phenolic character. Sundew, however, is non-phenolic and incapable of producing the spicy clove flavors that were previously competing with its pure, juicy red-fruit bouquet.
Ripe banana esters (with a hint of pear) make this new, Omega Yeast original a standout for pastry stouts, milkshake IPAs and other modern ales. For prime banana esters, pitch at 68°F (20°C) and let free rise to 72-75°F (22-24°C). Unlike its parental Hefeweizen strain, Bananza is versatile because it is non-phenolic and therefore incapable of producing clove flavors that would mask its pure banana profile.
