OB is a rare treat. Never previously commercially available, this is the pure, clean yeast culture used to primary ferment a highly regarded traditional Belgian Oud Bruin. This culture does not contain Brett or Lactic Acid Bacteria.
Creates totally unique Belgian table beers and Abbey-style ales that are dry, pleasantly spicy, ester driven, and taste of candied sugar.
