Yeast Thumb 21

Belgian Golden Strong

Perfectly suited for the production of high-gravity Belgian ales where a dry finish is desired. A mellow phenolic character is balanced by an ester profile of pear and light banana, while high levels of glycerol production ensure a round mouthfeel even at very low finishing gravity. Consistently reaches greater than 90% apparent attenuation without sluggishness or stalling.

This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevsiae var. diastaticus, and is capable of fermenting dextrins, resulting in very high attenuation.
