Feedback and experiences from previous customers.
Perfect yeast for this, the spice of the yeast and the basil is fantastic. Cleared out, dropped from 1.058 to 1.008 in a little over a week at 18 to 26c in the end. I'll sure again.
“WHOA, WHAT AN AWESOME YEAST”
So this yeast did wonders for a saison I brewed. Some great spice and funk at the end and finished with virtually no residual sugars. I think I may have gotten a little brett in there from a previous brew, which may account for the 1.000 gravity reading but the yeast itself performed marvelously and the end result was super clear and pretty!
I used this in a Belgian pale kit from MoreBeer that I brewed a week ago. Just took a gravity reading and it's down to my estimated final gravity, and most of all is flat out delicious. Not carbed, cold or cleared, yeast charecter is there but not overpowering. I ended up using this blend purely because my LHBS was out of all other belgian yeast varietys, at the time I was bummed but now I'm glad it worked out this way. I will be using this more often in the future.
“OUTSTANDING AS BELGIAN PALE ALE”
I brewed a "Belgian pale ale" with this yeast. It was an experiment and greatly exceeded expectations. In fact it was probably the best beer I have brewed, and my friends who don't generally drink Belgian beer all love this one. I call it Belgian pale ale because I used significant hops, and no sugars. (Ingredients included dextrine malt, Belgian biscuit, Weyermann Carafa malt, and Briess light DME.) Like other Belgian yeasts from White Labs, this fermented quickly and thoroughly at about 80 F
