Beer Brewing Classes



Traditional yeast from the originator of the Belgian Golden Strong Ale style.   Robust attenuation makes this yeast an excellent choice for low or high gravity belgian and farmhouse style ales.  Leaves a dry, slightly tart finish with an estery profile reminiscent of apple and pear with a subdued level of spicy phenolics.  This yeast produces a moderate amount of sulfide  that will dissipate quickly with conditioning.

Representative Styles:

Attenuation Medium Gravity*                        83% 85%

Attenuation High Gravity*                             78% 81% (9.6% 10.2% ABV)

Temperature Range:                                     65°F 80°F

Flocculation:                                                  Low

Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70°F and Lager yeast at 50°F.  Medium Gravity is 14° 16°Plato.  High Gravity is 23°- 25°Plato. 

The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style.  As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68° 72°F and then lower or raise temp as desired.  Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45° 58°F.  If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a hot start at 65-68°F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
