1 year agoMuch better if you rehydrate itI 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.January 10, 2016Used it on the TrappistUsed it on the Trappist Ale today. Should be fine.January 9, 2016Nice Belgian flavorI 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.August 8, 2015Extraordinary yeastMaybe I got lucky, but this yeast has proven to be the most efficient dry yeast I have used in 20+ years of brewing. I made a all grain Belgian blonde ale with an SG of 1.054, primary at 66 F for 11 days, then 2 weeks in secondary at the the same temperature for a FG of 1.0. I have never experienced such an efficient yeast in such a short period of time. It settled out very clean and allowed the flavor and aroma of the hops to really come through. I am planning to re-use it for other styles of Belgian ale and think you should give it a try.May 10, 2015
