Bastogne Belgian Ale Platinum Strain Returns in Jan. ’13!

7 Dec

January sees the release of three Platinum Strain varieties, including one that we get a lot of questions/requests for: WLP510 Bastogne Belgian Ale Yeast. This high gravity Trappist-style yeast is ideally suited for those big beers that keep us warm throughout the winter, such as Belgian ales, dubbels and trippels. This yeast is a strong fermenter and produces spicy aromatics and dark fruit notes as well as a slightly tart finish. Moreover, it’s a very versatile strain that produces very little phenolic character. It’s also a superb option for an Orval clone. Once 2013 rolls around, ask about it at your local homebrew shop!
