WLP565 – Belgian Saison Ale Yeast
Classic Saison yeast from Wallonia. It produces earthy, peppery, and spicy notes. Slightly sweet. With high gravity saisons, brewers may wish to dry the beer with an alternate yeast added after 75% fermentation.
Note: This strain tends to stall out in fermentation and then restart as long as two weeks later. Make sure the wort is well-oxygenated and allow the temperature to free rise in order to ensure complete fermentation. Some brewers add WLP001 to finish.
Our liquid yeasts are shipped with an ice pack to keep your yeast cool during transit. We recommend for them to be purchased before Thursday to ensure they aren’t stuck in a courier warehouse over the weekend.
