Danstar, makers of high-quality dry yeast, have come out with Abbaye, a wonderful Belgian dry yeast strain, perfect for doing all your Belgian and trappist-style ales! Particularly good for use in the production of high gravity Belgian ales such as dubbels, trippels, and quads. However, it can be used to make almost any Belgian-style ale! Abbaye mimics a lot of trappist-style yeasts, being highly attenuative, low flocculating and producing the fruit esters and spicy phenolic compounds that are often associated with beers from Belgium. Alcohol-tolerant, Abbaye can ferment high gravity worts thoroughly in a short amount of time, producing beers of excellent quality. An extended aging time will lead to a clearer finished beer. For those brewers who simply love big Belgian beers, Abbaye is a wonderful dry alternative!
