WLP550 - Belgian Ale Yeast

Post by DaveDoran » 2 years ago

Not sure if you all have much experience with WLP550 - Belgian Ale Yeast. Im very surprised by it. Pitched on fri at 20 deg. Finished ferment by Mon morning. 1.065 - 1.013 in 3 days. Ill leave it another week to finish up but it already lower than the target fg.

I've only used saison yeasts so far and haven't brewed other Belgian styles. Did you make a Dubbell or Belgian pale? Let us know how it turns out and what sort of yeast character it lends.

I used it for a Biere de Garde and came out really good. Bit peppery and dark fruits. Would be really good for a dubbel or maybe even tripple.
