Brettanomyces yeast species have been the subjects of previous studies conducted over the past century, however the majority of the research was focused on enhancing the knowledge of the wine industry only.

The Brettanomyces Project An open source Masters dissertation from start to finish on Brettanomyces spp. A recent study by Aguilar Uscanga et al. Initial Discovery and Characterization The earliest published account came from a paper presented to the Institute of Brewing in which Claussen described the discovery of a newly isolated yeast that he proposed be called Brettanomycesand was responsible for the secondary brtetanomyces and development of characteristic flavors and aromas of the finest English stock ales.

In a table produced by Gillilandthe closely related Brettanomyces claussenii strains were shown to be capable of fermenting maltose and shared a common component with the Brettanomyces anomalus strains in that both were capable of fermenting lactose and cellobiose. The original posts written while I was conducting the various research and studies, can be found in the MSc.

These enzymes appear to be responsible in part for the over attenuation observed by Brettanomyces yeast. In a later study carried out by Wiken et al. Think of wild as a broad third category of beer: The new website is now up and operational with the dissertation content posted and a new section up which will detail the practical usage of Brettanomyces yeasts during my upcoming endeavor.


Fermentation performance with five initial concentrations of lactic acid present pre-fermentation Figures 1.

Thought I would include some photos of the pure culture fermentations to give some insight into the research project and show how I set up to observe trial fermentations. Throughout the fermentation I plan to post updates and give insights into the beers progress as well as posting a final overview of the fermentation characteristics from data collected during fermentation. The earliest published account came from a paper presented in to the Institute of Brewing in which N.

Those are the anamorphs Brettanomyces bruxellensisBrettanomyces anomalusBrettanomyces custersianusBrettanomyces naardenensisand Brettanomyces nanuswith teleomorphs existing for the first two species, Dekkera bruxellensis and Dekkera anomala Kurtzman and Fell, brettanomycces Cocolin et al. Higher initial concentrations of lactic acid had a significant effect, increasing the level of attenuation observed in each strain, while generally decreasing the secondary metabolites produced.

The Brettanomyces Project

Pure culture fermentations were given 35 days 5 weeks to attenuate before data and samples were collected and frozen for later analysis. Impact of pitching rate on apparent attenuation The third component to the Brettanomyces Project is brettanomycee, the Current Venture section.

The presence of b-glucosidase, the enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of cellobiose in Brettanomyces spp. Based on the fermentation performance at each pitching rate a comparative analysis can be done observing the effect of the multiple pitching rates.

Esterases present in Brettanomyces spp. This study was conducted to evaluate the pure culture fermentation performance of eight strains of Brettanomyces with the objective to find characteristic compounds produced during fermentation. The entire contents of the dissertation is available and can be reached by visiting the The Brettanomyces Masters Dissertation.


We find that when great care is taken in the selection of strains, and when the right conditions are provided for the yeast to flourish, they lend anything from orange, lemon, or lime characteristics to stone fruit, apples, ripe mangoes, and pineapple. Posted in Brettanomyces Project. Abstract You are here: Growth curve for five strains of Brettanomyces during semi-aerobic batch culture 2.

Very little information previously existed regarding pure culture fermentative capabilities and the aromatic compounds produced by various strains of Brettamomyces.

Current Venture

The first systematic investigation was conducted by Custers and in he presented his findings on 17 strains of Brettanomyces spp. Further observations under anaerobic conditions led Custers to believe cells slowly became adapted to anaerobic conditions with a normal anaerobic fermentation ensuing Skinner, This has occurred out of experimentation as very little information exists regarding bretatnomyces culture fermentative capabilities and the aromatic compounds produced by various strains.

Further analysis confirmed that the esterases present brettwnomyces Brettanomyces spp.

Little is known about these compounds and their production by Brettanomyces spp. Project 26 Propagation 6 Yeast cell images 1 Yeast culturing
