Biere de Garde

OYL-039

Available in Probrew pitches only

Yeast Thumb 30

Lightly phenolic, fruity, dry, delicately tart and a very low flocculator, the Biere de Garde strain presents much like a saison strain. Try this for biere de garde, or a Belgian or French farmhouse ale. For farmhouse, try also French Saison (OYL-026) or Belgian Saison II (OYL-042).

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.
