Description

  • BE-134 is a go-to strain for Saisons and other dry, spicy Belgian-style beers
  • Produces highly refreshing beers that are fruity and floral with phenolic notes
  • Fermentis active dry yeast offers reliability, ease-of-use, and consistency to home and professional beverage makers across the world

A great choice for fermenting Belgian-style saisons, BE-134 gives off fruity aromas and spicy notes, such as cloves. This yeast is known to have particularly high attenuation, and produces very refreshing beers.

This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.

Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.

  • Attenuation: 89-93%
  • Sedimentation Time: Slow
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 9-11% ABV
  • Optimum Fermentation Temp: 64-78°F

*See the technical data sheet below for more information on rehydration, usage and storage.

I was going to get the liquid Belgian yeast from Omega, which looks fantastic, but it's so much more expensive. This looks like it could be almost as good, for less than half the price.

Rehydrated and added one packet to 6 gal. of Belgian Tripel wort. Took off in about 12 hours and is fermenting vigorously. Eagerly awaiting results.

Great Dry Yeast
Currently 8 days into primary with this yeast. Trying to find a cheaper alternative to liquid. I sampled it today and seems great! Nice esters and a bit spicy. Fermentation was fast and consistent.
