WLP665 Flemish Ale Blend
 
Anyone else excited to see another sour blend coming from our friends at White Labs? This is listed as the 2012 Platinum Strain Series Release for Sept/Oct 2012.

Per their site...

Blended culture used to produce the classic beer styles of the West Flanders region of Belgium . A proprietary blend of Saccharomyces yeasts, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus, this culture creates a more complex, dark stone fruit characteristic than WLP 655 Belgian Sour Mix.

I read this as a Oud Bruin, Flanders Red blend.

I'm already scheming how to get it over the Pacific. I'll be stateside at Christmas, so I'll have to have it shipped to a family member and let them refrigerate it for me until my visit.

I've got a raging mash paddle just thinking about it.

I'm thinking about maybe doing 10 gallons of Flanders Red/Brown and doing a side by side with Roeselare...

I just picked up a couple of vials and ingredients for an Oud Bruin. I'm going with two vials in a 5 gallon batch, no starter, and pitching it from the start...then trying to be patient for the next 6-12 months.

Deal. Wanna do a trade in a year or so? :rockin:

As an update, I was thinking about using the BCS Flanders Brown recipe and scaling it up, but I may just use Vinnie's recipe for Supplication and scale that. Either way, I'll be brewing 20 gallons of sour before the year is up - 10 gallons Flanders Red/Brown and 10 gallons BGSA base. Should be interesting.

I just picked two vials up about 30 minutes ago (read about it in an AHS email and had my HBS special order for me earlier in the week), along with grain for a Flanders Brown at my HBC's group brew tomorrow!!

The race is on for the first HBT batch with this yeast!!
