(BY640-3787) This is a nice, bright Abbey strain of liquid beer yeast. It adds a well-rounded fruity flavor and aroma to the brew. It's perfect for brewing Belgian Dubbels and Tripels. Because of this beer yeast's flexibility it is often used in many other Belgian ales. Makes a good general 'house' strain for Belgian-style beers. This is a top-cropping beer yeast, so abundant head-space will need to be allowed for foaming.
