4.6 / 5.014 ReviewsGreat Belgian FlavorThis yeast produced a nice tart, dry Belgian style golden / Saison in the 75-80F temp range. I will gladly use this for Saisons in the future over fiddling with liquid yeast and making starters.September 14, 2011Fast Starting YeastThis yeast was bubbling twice as fast as Coopers (7gm pack) the next day. Tart flavor with fermentation at upper 70s. Coopers with identical (split) batch is a smoother flavor (using sorghum malt syrup and Simpson 60 malt fro color and flavor). Nice and clear with Clarity Ferm to crack the gluten.August 31, 2012Good value for Belgian-style BrewsI made a honey wheat with T-58 and pitched the yeast at about 10 PM. When I checked on the batch at 3 AM - it was already actively fermenting and produced a wonderful spicy aroma coming from the airlock. I just opened my first bottle (4 days in the bottle) and it tastes and smells great - with spicy clove and pepper flavor and a small touch of banana aroma and flavor. I will use this yeast again for any Belgian wheats that I make.January 2, 2013yeastthis yeast makes a very tasty brew. It has a very vigorous fermentation and made a wonderful aleMarch 21, 2013Nice for belgian wit bierI used this for a caramel belgian wit bier, it fermented out very nicely with a good flavor at even the higher temps of 70 degrees. This one does well at higher temps, so something to keep in mind for warm weather brewing.April 20, 2013Took of like a RocketDid a small two gallon batch that was split between two one gallon jugs. Poured 1/2 teaspoon dry on top of each one and took off almost immediately. I have never seen anything like it. Made a version of my Belgian Blonde hoping for a tasty brew. Going to keep a few of these on hand.April 27, 2013Good yeastStarts quickly and eats like crazy. Produces a lot of esters and really adds to the character. I used this in an IPA and it really did the job well.June 18, 2013Nice yeastI brewed a Belgian Brown Wheat with this last month. I only call it Belgian because of this yeast. It turned out with a very nice, complex flavor. It was also incredibly smooth.September 6, 2013Good cheap Belgian yeastI like to save money where I can and this yeast makes a pretty good Belgian beer for a third the price of the liquid yeast. I've made 3 different Belgian ales with this yeast and all have a nice taste and aroma from the yeast.September 11, 2013Good yeast; easy to useI've used this to re-start secondary fermentation when another yeast quits too soon. I've also used it to ensure healthy yeast in a high-strength beer before bottle conditioning. It has always given good results. It gives a clean, classic Belgian character and the flavors blend well with other Belgian ale yeasts. It is also very simple to use; just sprinkle it on top of the beer or wort and you're done.December 21, 2013
