One of our favourite new isolates, obtained from an American producer of Belgian-style beers. This strain exhibits classic dry Belgian flavours, and displays an aggressive primary fermentation. We especially like this strain for Strong Golden, Tripel, and other Belgian-style beers.
NOTE: This strain contains the STA1 gene, meaning it is a diastatic yeast. Many industrial yeasts are diastatic, due to the desire for very high attenuation levels. However extra care must be taken to ensure these yeasts do not cross-contaminate non-diastatic yeasts.
Optimum Temp: 22C-26°C (72-79°F)
Alcohol tolerance: >12%
