B63 Monastic is an exquisite yeast best known for fermenting abbey ales, especially quads as well as high alcohol and dark Belgian beers. This strain produces beers with a high level of phenolic character and esters. Often slower at the onset of fermentation allowing this strain to easily dry out high gravity worts. Due to low flocculation, expect Monastic to stay in suspension for a quite some 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.
