Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)


This strain is a beautiful yeast for fermenting abbey ales, especially quads; high alcohol and dark Belgian beers. Monastic will produce beers with a high level of phenolic character and esters. It can be slow to begin fermentation but will easily dry out high gravity worts. This strain is a low flocking strain, so expect it to stay suspended for a long time.

    So far so good
    I just transferred my Belgium Dark Strong into the secondary after being in the primary for 2 weeks. The gravity reading was spot on at 1.013 thanks to this yeast (OG was 1.088). Fermentation started quick and lasted for 3 days. I allowed the temp to rise to 75 degrees with the hopes of getting some Belgium yeast flavors, but not as much flavor as a Saison. I can say that this yeast achieved exactly that. Thus far it has nice hints of spiciness that are not overpowering. I’ll probably let it sit in the secondary for a coupe of weeks then let it lager for another couple of weeks before serving. Word of warning, the yeast took about a day longer to begin fermentation in my starter so be sure to be patient with it. As I understand, a late start is typical for these high gravity Belgium yeast strains. Oh, and the can that it comes in is a great idea. Much better than the packaging other manufactures use.
