WildBrew™ Philly Sour is a unique species of Lachancea which produces moderate amounts of lactic acid in addition to ethanol in one simple fermentation step.

The first yeast in the WildBrew™ series, Philly is a great choice for innovative, sessionable sour beers with refreshing acidity and notes of stone fruit. Key characteristics include high attenuation, high flocculation and good head retention.
