Product Details

From one of the six Trappist breweries remaining in the world, this yeast produces the distinctive fruitiness and plum characteristics. Excellent yeast for high gravity beers, Belgian ales, dubbels and trippels. Lower temperatures (under 65° F) will result in less fruity and more earthy beers. Many authentic Trappist style beers are brewed at 75° F. Apparent attenuation: 73-78%. Flocculation: medium–low. Optimum temp: 65°-70° F

Won a local competition with this yeast plus a sachet of 05 brewed at 70deg and the Dubbel kit. The beer was only 1 mo. old...has gotten better since.

Tastes and smells great, but very low flocculating
I used this for a Westmalle Dubbel clone I am designing. The flavor and aroma are perfect for this beer, but it still has significant cloudiness and yeast bite. It's still pretty young for the style (5 weeks), so I know I just need to be patient, but it's hard! I kegged it, and it is pouring cloudier and cloudier every day, so I'm hoping that another couple weeks and it will clear up as the yeast drop out. Also, I pitched two vials into a 5 gal batch that were about 2 months old, and had a very sluggish start (~24 hrs), and the beer didn't attenuate as much as I expected (FG 1.022), so I would highly recommend using a nice big starter and not just pitching directly.

Used 2 vials in a 5 gallon batch, started off slow, but about 24 hours after pitching yeast the beer took off. Great tasting triple!

Why is everyone out of WLP500? Is it seasonal or something?

BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry for the trouble. It could be that White Labs is behind on production of that strain. We hope to have some more in the next few weeks.
