Here’s the Summer Sour Recipe You’ll Be Sweet On

We think summer is the perfect time to brew up a pucker-worthy sour that you can sip poolside or on your front porch with some neighbors. And just in time for your summer brewing is the release of  WildBrew™ Philly Sour  yeast. It is a unique species of Lachancea selected from nature by University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, PA, USA (Patent pending N° PCT/US20 18/043 148). WildBrew™ Philly Sour produces moderate amounts of lactic acid in addition to ethanol in one simple fermentation step.

It is a great choice for sessionable sour beers--producing a brew with refreshing acidity and notes of stone fruit.  


Here’s the official 5 gallon recipe:


Mash @ 149F

8.5 pounds Pale Malt

1.0 pound flaked Wheat

0.5 pound Flaked Oats



Total Boil Time Time 60 Minutes

1.0 oz Mt. Hood @ 45 Minutes

0.5 oz Cascade @ 15 minutes



You can get everything you need at PHO. Here’s what we’ve got:


2 Row Barley 

Flaked Oats 

Flaked Wheat 

Philly Sour Dry Yeast 

Cascade Pellet Hops 

Mt. Hood Pellet Hops
