Flavor Series


Achieve the perfect level of acidity with no off-flavors. Galactic strains produce lactic acid during fermentation, which enables quick-souring in the fermentor without a kettle-pasteurization step. Galactic strains save you time and money by making sour beer production as cost effective as making normal beer.

Galactic Chico

Galactic Chico lets you produce clean and consistent sour beer. Lactic acid production has been dialed in for a finishing pH of ~3.5 (TA 7-9). Fruit additions will increase acidity further.
