Brewer’s Best Sours Featuring Philly Sour Yeast
These sour recipes are easy to craft and thanks to Lallemand’s Philly Sour yeast. Philly Sour yeast produces lactic acid before fermentation starts so you don’t require traditional long aging periods or the use of the kettle souring method. This yeast 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, Bonanza and Lutra Kveik
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.
Isolated from our Hornindal Kveik culture, Lutra™ is shockingly clean with unrivaled speed when pitched at 90°F (32°C). The strain is perfect for brewing an even more neutral and refreshing pseudo-lager at its lower temperatures, without the lead time of a traditional lager yeast. Lutra is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones.
