BE-256 BELGIAN-STYLE ABBAYE ALE YEAST 11g Packet Fermentis SafAle Dry Brewers Yeast


Fermentis BE-256 is a Belgian-style ale strain selected specifically to vigorously ferment Belgian style beers ranging from low to high alcohol in 4 days.  Formerly known as “Abbaye”, it produces the spiciness and fruitiness typical of Belgian and Trappist style ales. When fermented at higher temperatures, typical flavors and aromas include tropical, spicy and banana.  At lower temperatures Abbaye produces darker fruit aromas and flavors of raisin, date, and fig.  To maintain the aromatic profile at the end of the fermentation, we do recommend to crop this yeast as soon as possible after fermentation.  Traditional styles brewed with this yeast include but are not limited to Belgian White, Belgian Blonde, Belgian Golden, Dubbel, Tripel, and Quad.
