A Beast!
I used this yeast in my Belgian Dubbel per the recommendation of Dan in the Riverside showroom. I made a 1000 ml starter and fermented at 70 degrees. It took my 1.062 wort down to 1.006. I can't wait to use it again.

Belgian Dubbel
Currently working on the perfect Dubbel with my son. This yeast starts well, ferments strong and smells wonderful. Be sure to use a starter and stir with O2 after pitching. I am comparing this yeast with 4 others on the same receipt for best flavor in what we personally like. More later...
