This devil of a strain is thought to be from the famous strong golden ale brewer. The bargain is classic sacrifice for pay off: tricky fermentation kinetics for rich flavor profile and aroma complexity. If tempted by this flavorful but low flocculating stop-and-starter, let us know and we can help with a tip or two. Belgian Golden Strong (OYL-056) is a great alternative with a similar flavor profile, but more reliable fermentation performance.
Brewing Properties of BELGIAN ALE D
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
