OYL-039

Biere de Garde

Lightly phenolic, fruity, dry, delicately tart and a very low flocculator, this presents much like a saison strain. Try this for Bière de Garde, or a Belgian or French farmhouse ale. In fact, a clean-bodied Bière de Garde can be achieved with any lager strain here at the warm end of its temperature range. 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.

Omega Yeast’s metabolically healthy cells produce vigorous fermentation and consistent results for Probrewers and Homebrewers alike.
