Monastic is a classic abbey strain of Belgian yeast, and as such works well in the production of big abbey ales, such as quads and dark Belgian ales. It will produce the big esters and a high amount of spicy phenolics which are characteristic of traditional Belgian ales and the monk-produced Abbey ales. Great for trappist-style beers as well! As this strain is a lower flocculating strain, expect it to stay in solution for awhile, completing fermentation and giving a distinct dryness to the finished beers.
ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), 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 hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
