Belgian Strong Ale is the quintessential yeast strain used in the making of highly-prized Belgian Golden Strong Ales. A yeast with an illustrious history that includes the Duvel Brewery, this strain is very alcohol tolerant and can withstand high alcohol environments that would decimate lesser yeasts. It also strikes a nice balance between fruity esters and spicy phenolics to create a uniquely Belgian character that presents itself nicely in light, strong Belgian style ales. With a high temperature range that stretches to 80°F, high attenuation and a somewhat tart finish, Belgian Strong Ale is a yeast that all Belgian lovers should consider for their high-alcohol creations.
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!
