Fermentation Temp Range (Degrees F): 70-85
Apparent Attenuation Range (%): 85+

Pitching/Fermentation: The mildest on the Brett funkiness spectrum, Brett Claussenii presents more of a leathery earthiness and some pineapple - both characteristics that are contributed in large part by the aroma alone. It does its best work as a secondary yeast. See also: Brett Bruxellensis (OYL-202), Brett Lambicus (OYL-203) and three Funk blends (OYL-210, 211, 212).
