Yeast Thumb 21

Belgian Golden Strong

Perfect for high-gravity Belgian ales with a dry finish, its relatively mellow phenolic character is balanced by light banana and pear esters. High levels of glycerol production give it a round mouthfeel even at a 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.
