I've grown up the dregs from some Rince Cochon for the first phase of a lambic I'm brewing. Next ill add some brett, oak cubes and sour cherries after primary is done. I'm fermenting at 64 degrees because the website indicates this it's a top fermenting yeast. Does anyone know if this is a Belgian yeas or something else?

They say they actually ferme t this with a lager strain but then refer me t in the bottle with a top fermenting strain. Theoretically that could be swine yeast or a beer yeast... But I couldn't tell what characters it has from the starter

After tasting... this is some form of belgian yeast. Seems similar in esters to an abbey strain. It does floc well and it doesn't throw a lot of powerful esters, very pleasant.
