White Labs' Abbey Ale yeast strain is purported to originate from one of the abbeys that observes the rules of the International Trappist Association, thus making it a true trappist brewery. This yeast strain is well-balanced, and though it is highly attenuative, tends to lend beers more in the ways of body and mouthfeel that other highly attenuative Belgian ale strains. It is less fruity that other yeast strains, but is more alcohol tolerant. As such, it is a great choice when making high gravity trappist beers and other high gravity Belgian styles. Great for dubbels, trippels , and other Belgian ales of all types!

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!
