WLP 515 - Antwerp Ale Yeast
When you want to put a stronger emphasis on hops in your Belgian Pale Ale or IPA, while still retaining the unique spirit of Belgian beers, WLP515 Antwerp Ale Yeast might be just the thing you were looking for.
This is a very interesting strain sourced from a brewery in Antwerp, Belgium that is characterized by almost lager-like crispness with notes of sulphur and a distinct biscuit flavour.
It is characterized by an impressive attenuation, medium flocculation and alcohol tolerance, which delivers a dry finish to most of the beers this strain is used for. An obvious choice for Belgian Table Beers and Biere de Garde, WLP515 can actually be used in a variety of styles, especially when you feel a bit experimental.
|Description||Another interesting feature of WLP515 Antwerp Ale Yeast is its tendency for accentuating hop aroma and bitterness. This makes the strain very useful when making Pale Ales, IPAs, and other hop-forward beers that still require a distinct Belgian touch for obtaining the desired complexity.
While being an ale strain with a rather broad optimal temperature range, in many cases WLP515 can taste like a lager yeast, which makes it a good choice for brewing refreshing and original lager-like ales.
