Belgian Abbey II is relatively clean as far as Belgian yeast strains go. While it will produce dry fruit characteristics at higher temperatures, it will remain more neutral than other Belgian strains at lower temperatures. Fermenting higher gravity worts will cause more fruit esters to be produced as well, which makes this an excellent choice for Belgian Strong Ales and, if you're feeling adventurous, even Russian Imperial Stouts or Strong Scotch Ales. It is highly alcohol tolerant, and is known to put off an ethanol character in stronger beers. This character pairs well with strong malt notes that are allowed to dominate by this yeast. It is fairly attenuative, and like most Belgian strains, will stay in suspension for longer periods. The yeast is known to throw off sulfuric compounds that clear up when the yeast is given proper time and conditions, finishing with unique, clean beers with plenty of character.


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!
