Great for Mead

I love this yeast for mead - traditional, spiced, even fruit works well and quickly and cleanly.

Worked great!

Arrived on time and worked perfectly! I recieved many compliments on my beer and the yeast had a lot to do with it, thanks!

Excellent Yeast for High Nutrient Loads

I have used this yeast twice now and it has worked well with high nutrient loads. Still produced good carbonation in secondary fermentation.

Wonderful Taste

I have made a few 5 gallon batches and I love the flavor!

Great in BGSA and BOMM!

Dynamite yeast for Duvel-like beers and a tremendous yeast for bringing fruity esters to meads. In meads, this yeast is VERY dynamic with temperature. In my experience with differ ferment temps: low (62F) gives and pretty clean profile with hints of peach, mid (68F) brings bigger esters, darker fruit, and high temps (72F+) really crank out an unmistakable Belgian ale profile.
