Westmalle, Rochfort, Chimay, Casteel Unique properties:
This strain produces intense esters and phenolic characteristics with complex fruitiness. It does not produce significant amounts of iso-amyl acetate (banana esters) or bubble gum esters typical of many yeasts of this style. Phenol and ester production are influenced by fermentation temperatures and phenols tend to dissipate as beer matures. This type of yeast benefits from incremental feeding of sugars during fermentation to ferment to dryness, making suitable conditions for doubles and triples. It is a true top cropping yeast with a broad temperature range.
Consider adding the yeast fuel option.
