... VERY ENJOYABLE FLAVOR

By: akress | Date: Nov., 20th 2012 | Beer(s) Brewed: Single Ale, Belgian Strong Ale, Belgian Strong Blonde

 

Excellent yeast. Moderate fruitiness and a very enjoyable flavor on the palate. I did notice after repitching from a stronger brew that there were noticeable diacetyl flavors that were not intentional. True to the rochefort line of beers but hard to get that plum flavor with such mildly alcohol brews as mine.

 

ABBEY ALE NAMED "NICE"

By: Mike Perreault | Date: Nov., 20th 2012 | Beer(s) Brewed:Belgian Specialty Ale

 

The WLP540 was new to us this year. We have a Belgian Grand Cru that we normally brew with the WLP530 and it is one of or favorite beers. This winter we brewed a 10 gallon batch and split it into two fermenters, one with WLP530 and one with WLP540. The WLP540 was fermented at 66F and produced a moderately attenuated ale at 5.5% abv. It finished a bit sweeter than the WLP530 with bit more fruitiness and much less of a spicy finish. This was bottled as our Winter Abbey Ale named "Nice".

I am now on week nine and it is at 1.011, and tasting amazing. If you use this yeast ... I would forget about it for at least 12 weeks
