Dark Belgian Cask (WLP4653)
From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Blend • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Brettanomyces bruxellensis
Dark Belgian Cask is a blend a classic Belgian Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain and our Brettanomyces bruxellensis - Strain TYB184. Together these strains produce a dry beer with a vinous quality and a flavor profile of dried dark fruit, plum, leather, and a mild earthy funk and acidity. Both strains in this blend are very alcohol tolerant (10-15%). While this blend is fairly versatile, its complexity truly shines in dark beers.
Brewing Properties of Dark Belgian Cask
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.
