One Brett-famous Colorado brewery strain, plus two strains that were formerly classified as Brett (but are now known to be Saccharomyces), result in huge tropical fruit aromas that mingle well with fruity aroma hops. Note that aroma intensity fades a bit during conditioning. Brett Blend #1: Where Da Funk? has a wide temperature range, finishes very dry, and leaves neither much funk nor much body (consider adding flaked oats for body). Mild funk level and low acidity is consistent even with extended aging
This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation.
