Belgian ale yeast from White Labs is a great overall yeast strain for producing a number of classic Belgian ales. From Belgian reds, browns and whites to saisons and pales, you'll have your bases covered with this strain! It produces more spicy phenolics than fruity esters, allowing beers to express Belgian characteristics without being excessively fruity. This yeast can ferment vigorously (as many Belgian strains can) so be prepared with a blowoff tube or extra headspace in your fermenter! Many report excellent results with this strain on a range of Belgian ales. Good as a Belgian "house" yeast!
- A great all-around strain for the production of Belgian Ales.
- Generally produces more spicy phenolics than fruity esters.
- A great yeast strain for trappist-style ales, Belgian blondes, singles, dubbels, tripels, golden strong ales, dark strong ales, Belgian pale ales, Belgian IPAs, Belgian speciality ales and holiday ales.
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!
