Abbey Ale Yeast - WLP 530
WLP530 Abbey Ale Yeast delivers the authentic Belgian Abbey beer experience to your brewhouse.
Sourced from one of the famous abbey breweries in Belgium, this strain is an excellent attenuator with high alcohol tolerance that can tackle high gravity worts without any stress. Compared to other authentic Belgian Ale strains, WLP530 delivers fewer fruity compounds while retaining a nice mouthfeel despite the high attenuation rates.
It is quite versatile, as it will suit not just the obvious Trappist beers, but Belgian beers in general, producing excellent Blondes, Golden and Dark Strong Ales, Belgian Pale Ales and IPAs, and many other styles.
Abbey Ale YeastWLP530 features impressive alcohol tolerance and can deal with ABV of up to 15%. And what’s really interesting about this strain, is that it tackles both low and high gravity worts in a similar manner, given that the right pitching rates are applied. WLP530 can be characterized as a relatively neutral strain if compared to other specialty Belgian yeast, as its spice and fruit character takes the backseat, while leaving lots of space for malt and hops in terms of flavour. It is an excellent choice for making a broad variety of beers, from Abbey Dubbels, Tripels and Quadrupels, to Belgian-style IPAs, Blonde Ales, Witbiers, Saisons, and Biere de Garde.
