    Excellent Belgian Yeast
    This was a great yeast in both a big chocolate rye stout as well as a more conventional blonde ale. Had a decent amount of lag time in both, but once they got going, they went! The stout aged for three months and exhibited more phenols where the blonde was a faster brew that developed a significant amount of bubblegum esters along with the spicy phenols. Neither were as big as I have experienced in some Belgian beers, but both beers turned out excellently in my opinion! Unfortunately I do not use it often enough, so I will order it again.

    Excellent for Dark Belgian Beers
    This yeast produces big, spicy, phenolics that perfectly compliment the dark fruit, toffee, and chocolate notes of Dark Belgian Beers.It is a powerful fermentor, dropping to terminal gravity in 3-5 days (depending on the OG). It is not too big a top-cropper, and even really big beers don't usually require a blow-off tube if there's a bit of head-space in the fermentor.I've won a number of awards for a Dubbel that I brew with this yeast and I'm convinced it's the spicy phenolics that causes by beer to stand out.
