Belle Saison yeast from Danstar is a great dry yeast alternative for making all kinds of saisons and Belgian ales. It is highly attenuative and has a high alcohol tolerance, making it suitable for saisons and high gravity Belgian ales alike. As with many Belgian strains, Belle Saison is considered to have low flocculation properties. An extended primary fermentation and/or fining can be utilized in order to help beers clear properly. This strain produces wonderful fruity esters and spicy phenols that work well in Belgian ales, and production of both of these can be manipulated with fermentation temperatures. It is known to start quickly and to ferment vigorously, so be prepared with extra headspace in the primary and blowoff equipment. This yeast yields beers of very high quality, and comes highly recommended!
