Probable origin: Westmalle, Belgium
Beer Styles: Doubles, Triples, Abbey, Beir de Grarde Commercial examples may include: Westmalle, Rochfort, Chimay, Casteel
Unique properties: This strain produces intense esters and phenolic characteristics with complex fruitiness. Does not produce significant amount of iso-amyl acetate (banana esters) or bubble gum esters typical of many yeast of this style. Phenol and ester production are influenced by fermentation temperatures. Phenols tend to dissipate as beer matures. This type of yeast benefits from incremental feeding of sugars during fermentation, making suitable conditions for doubles and triples, to ferment to dryness with good alcohol tolerance approximately 11-12% ABV. True top cropping yeast with broad temperature range.
Flocculation - medium; apparent attenuation 75-80%. (64-78° F, 18-25° C)
Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.
