Brettanomyces bruxellensis AWRI1499 (AWRI1499_v1.0)

About Brettanomyces bruxellensis AWRI1499


Brettanomyces bruxellensis (the anamorph of Dekkera bruxellensis) is a yeast associated with and named after, the Senne valley near Brussels, Belgium. It is one of several members of the genus Brettanomyces, which were first classified at the Carlsberg brewery in 1904 by their technical director Niels Hjelte Claussen , who was investigating it as a cause of the fine flavour and condition of English ales, hence the name. Claussen applied on 17 May 1904 under U.S. Patent Application Number: US1904208464A for the "Manufacture of English beers and malt liquors". The patent was granted on 20 February 1906. The Isolation of an organism derived from bottles of traditional English beer was described and therefore chosen the name Brettanomyces, for the British origin "briton" and "myces" for the characterisation as fungus. Despite its Latin species name, B. bruxellensis is found all over the globe. In the wild, it is often found on the skins of fruit.
