Belgian Ale D

Yeast Thumb 21

This “devil” of a strain is thought to be from the famous strong golden ale brewer. The bargain with Belgian Ale D 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—or a great alternative.

This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevsiae var. diastaticus. This strain may have the ability to metabolize dextrins over time, resulting in higher than expected attenuation.
