Dry Belgian Ale
8/4/20 Online orders are paused until Easter so we can catch up on the backlog. While the team are in lockdown its only me picking and packing so we need to clear the orders in the system before we accept new orders. Please be patient and we'll open up the website to online orders again over Easter Weekend. Take care. Bryan
We are open and shipping online orders only from 6th April 2020. Our Retail shop is closed while we are in Level 4 of the lockdown so there can be no pickups from Brewers Coop.

We will contact you if your order needs substitutions buut rest assured we are doing our best to get you your brewing supplies. Take care, Bryan
Dry Belgian Ale is single strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from a unique golden strong ale. The profile is a complex and balanced mix of apple, pear and light citrus fruit with some mild spicy and peppery notes. The apparent attenuation of this strain ranges anywhere from 85-100%, depending upon the mash profile and the grist composition.
For a yeast that's as dry as it is, it creates beers with a surprising amount of balance even without the use of specialty grains or adjuncts. While we haven't completed our own tests in house, this yeast is used at the brewery from which it was isolated to make big beers that are in the neighborhood of 16-18% ABV and sufficiently dry. Use Dry Belgian Ale as a primary fermenter in any big Belgian beer, or to unstick that pesky stuck fermentation.
Temperature: 68-74 ºF
Attenuation: 85-100% (Diastatic Strain)
Flocculation: Medium - High
