White Labs Yeast - 510 Bastogne Belgian Ale
A high gravity, historic Belgian style ale yeast. Produces dry beer with slight acidic finish. More ‘clean’ fermentation character than WLP500 or WLP530. Not as spicy as WLP530 or WLP550. Excellent yeast for high gravity beers, Belgian ales, dubbels and trippels.

Feedback and experiences from previous customers.
“... EXCELLENT BALANCE OF FRUIT, SPICES ...”
I'm very impressed with the performance of this yeast. With an excellent balance of fruit, spices, and tartness it is my favorite Belgian Strain.
“MY FAVORITE ...”
My favorite of all White Labs Belgian strains. Dry, subdued phenols and moderate, complex esters; I get a lot of melon and rock candy flavors fermenting at room temperature (~70F). Lets malt and hop character through, fantastic for snappy, noble-heavy tripels. Finally, a Belgian that doesn't overwhelm!
“A GREAT YEAST ... ”
A great yeast, adds lots of great flavors to the beer. Used the yeast cake from a dubbel I brewed for a Belgian pale. I hope they make this year-round.
