Bastogne Belgian Ale Yeast - WLP 510
Characterized by a more balanced ester and phenol profile, WLP510 retains the distinct fruity tones associated with Belgian beers within a more restrained fashion.
Purportedly sourced from the famous Orval brewery, which has a distinct character even among Belgian Trappist beers, this strain is an excellent attenuator, with impressive alcohol tolerance, WLP510 a great match for high gravity beers.
|Description||WLP510 Bastogne Belgian Ale Yeast delivers a very dry finish with a slight tang to it, which makes even the strongest beers quite refreshing and deceptively easy to drink.
It has less of the fruit and spice character compared to other historical Belgian strains, and this feature can be further subdued by keeping fermentation temperatures on the lower side.
WLP510 is an obvious choice for making Trappist Dubbels, Tripels, Quadruples, as well as Fruit Beers, and Barleywines, as it takes on high gravities without any significant stress and can attenuate really well even the thickest worts you can get in your brewhouse.
