The classic choice for brewing golden strong ales. This alcohol tolerant strain will produce a complex ester profile balanced nicely with subtle phenolics. Malt flavors and aromas will remain even with a well attenuated dry, tart finish. This strain is prone to stalling at approximately 1.035; racking or slight aeration will encourage it to finish fermentation.
Use to: Belgian Blond Ale, Belgian Golden Strong Ale, Belgian Specialty Ale, Belgian Tripel, White IPA, Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer
Fermentation temperature: 18-27°C
Apparent attenuation: 74-78%
Alcochol tolerance: 12% ABV
Dosage: add to 5 gallons (19 L) of wort. >1.060
Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Wyeast Laboratories, Inc.
STORAGE CONDITIONS AND USAGE INSTRUCTION:
The yeast vial should be refrigerated (1-4°C).
1.Remove Activator from refrigeration ( 1-4 °C) and allow to come to room temperature just prior to use.
2.To activate, locate and move the inner pouch to a corner. Place this area in palm of one hand and firmly smack the package with the other hand to break the inner nutrient pouch. Confirm the inner pouch is broken. If you do not require proof of activity, proceed to the 5th step and Direct Pitch. Contents of inner pouch do not need to be transferred to your wort when not Activated.
3.Shake the package well to release the nutrients.
4.Allow the package to swell for 3-5 hours or more (it is not necessary for this package to fully swell before use) at ambient temperature (approx. 70 °F, 21 °C).
5.Use sanitizing solution to sanitize the package before opening.
6.Shake well, open and pour the Activator into 5 gallons (19 L) of well-aerated or oxygenated wort up to 1.060 OG at 65-72 °F (18-22 °C). Maintain temperature until fermentation is evident by CO2 bubble formation, bubbling airlock, or foaming on top of wort. For high gravity or low temperature fermentations, additional yeast may be required.
From England, this yeast can ferment up to 25% alcohol when used correctly. It produces ester characters that increase with increasing gravity. Malt character dominates at lower gravities. To achieve >25% ABV, sugar needs to be fed over the course of the fermentation.
From the Ardennes region of Belgium, this classic yeast strain produces moderate levels of ester and phenolic characters, often described as dried sage and black cracked pepper. High attenuation results in a dry finish ideal for high gravity beers. This strain is recommended for dark strong ales, abbey ales and seasonal specialties like Belgian holiday ales.
