Patersbier
Used a pack of this yeast on my Patersbier and despite no starter and dry-pitching (I was in a hurry) it lit off in less than two hours! It chuffed away like a demon, and finished in less than 72 hours. Sure, it's a low-gravity beer, but that was impressive. Flavors and aromas are great, and it seems like they're developing more and more as the beer comes along. 10/10, would recommend.

Great yeast for strong ABV beers
The first time I used this yeast, I direct pitched it in a relatively high OG wart (1.090). No yeast starter. Full krausen in less than 10 hours. Very good attenuation. I'm using it again for another high OG beer (Belgian strong) that I brewed last night. Same impressive results in the primary so far.

Belgian Triple Saver
During my final stage of preparing my Belgian Triple, I had an accident with yeast starter. Luckily I had a package of BE-256 on hand as this was given to me as a gift from a purchase that I made. To be honest, I was scared to use it since I was adding this yeast to a high gravity beer and I did not know what the outcome would be. Also, no one that I knew had used this strain before. After 10 long weeks, I had my first bottle last night and I am very pleased with the results. This was surprising due to the unique smell that was coming from the airlock during fermentation. This is a very fast acting yeast. The first day the smell was fine but at the beginning of the second day there was a strong sulfur odor which concerned me greatly. This was my first attempt at a Triple and my first use of an Abbaye style yeast. Apparently it is quite common for this strain to create this odor as a byproduct. Simply put, I was very impressed with the results. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

Not sure what is special here ?
Re-hydrated 1pk in a 1 pint starter for 2hrs pitched into 4 gallons of 1.070 wort at 64 degrees- held for 7 days, fermentation was moderate. Let go to room temp 72 degrees for 10 more days and hit 1.012 and bottled . 2 weeks in nothing special here , as in no flavors imparted from the yeast ; this basic recipe tastes the same as when brewed with some American ale yeasts

Gets better,and better
I found that my 10lb of 2row, 1lb chocolate malt, lib molasses. Some good hops. In bottles primed with a 1/4 cup honey. It's getting better and better. I'm a us05 guy but this works good. Nice deep tasting beer. Think next time. I'll work on it a little more. Add a few roasted malts. I like to get some whole 2 row soak than roast tell it's smelling wonderfull give it a spin in the blender add that,and get a lot of love from that. Fresh hops soon. Mmmm

Would this work well for a Porter?
Salvatore S on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think it would work well, I used this for a high alcohol brown ale. I liked it because it didn't add any new flavors to the beer, but produced a brew that was 10.2%
Is this considered a lager yeast?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe this is technically considered a lager yeast. It more of specialty ale yeast.
Will this yeast produce spicy phenols and fruity esters true to Belgian character when used as directed?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: absolutely, spot on
Anyone use this for stuck fermentations? I brewed a Belgian Dark Strong with WLP530 and it stalled out at 1.029. I pitched a starter of WLP099 and it has gotten down to 1.024. Still going to let it sit on the WLP099 a while longer, but looking for another yeast to potentially use if the WLP099 doesn't dry it out any further. CHeers

BEST ANSWER: This would work for this, but depending on the starting gravity of the beer, you may want to use 2 packs.
