I also use it on Stout, gives it a distinct somewhat "dry" taste with a Belgian touch. In the UK they'd have stripped me of citizenship for that :-)
Usually I go three generations by harvesting the trub. Most of the trub goes into a bread though.
Good strain for all ales especially high ABV. Keep a pack or two around.
I tried the Safbrew Abbaye dry yeast almost a year ago and followed the instructions on the packet (i.e. just sprinkle it on the wort) and I ended up with some weird plastic notes in a belgian recipe that I had brewed many times with liquid yeast. Since dry yeast is so convenient I thought I would give it another shot, but this time I rehydrated it (85-90F) and used it in a honey tripel. The results were really very good and am looking forward to using this in a belgian quad.
Used it on the Trappist Ale today. Should be fine.
I live to far away from any source of liquid yeast, So this summer I decided to give this a try on a Belgian Dark Strong Ale. This yeast went right to work bringing this big beer(SG1.078) down to 1.011 in just 6 days with temp holding around 71 degrees. True Belgian flavor, this will be my go to yeast for summer months when I don't trust shipping liquid yeast. This is really worth a try, planning to do a dubbel next.
