Wyeast's Belgian Ale strain is a classic yeast originating from the Chimay brewery. It can be used to create a plethora of Belgian ales. Spicy flavors blend with clove and banana esters, giving beers a layered depth of complexity. Belgian Ale yeast has a higher temperature range than many British and American strain, and the ester profile will vary with fermentation. Known to be a slow starter and a medium flocculator at best, this strain is highly attenuative once it gets going.
Warm Weather Shipping Notice
During the hot summer months we include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders, but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate.
