High Gravity Homebrew’s quarterly allocation of Bootleg Biology yeast strains has just been announced. These are very popular and usually sell out quickly.More About Funk Weapon #2
Source: Family-owned brewery producing Gueuze in West Flanders, Belgium.
This rare, and commercially unavailable yeast isolate is perfect for 100% Brettanomyces fermentations, especially Brett IPAs. Amplifies citrus and tropical fruit-forward hop flavors and aromas into a punchy ripeness. With extended time under CO2 pressure, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas will be more pronounced. Great for maintaining the nuance of hops in beer with better keeping qualities than a Brewer’s Yeast fermentation.
Funk Weapon #2 is featured in Trinity’s Magical Brettanomyces Tour #4, and experimentations by Highland Park Brewery, Yazoo Embrace The Funk, Mantra Artisan Ales and others.
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.
