Brettanomyces bruxellensis by Wyeast 5112 is a wild yeast strain that originates from the Brussels region of Belgium.

This strain may also form a pellicle in bottles or casks during fermentation. It is typically used in conjunction with Saccharomyces cerevisiae and other wild yeast and lactic bacteria. The development of its full flavor characteristics generally requires at least 3-6 months of aging.

Key characteristics of this yeast strain include:
- Flocculation: Medium
- Apparent Attenuation: 78 - 84%
- Apparent ABV Tolerance: 12%
- Optimal Temperature Range: 60-75°F (16-24°C)
