    Lallemand Northern Brewer Y023 Danstar Belle Saison Dry Yeast

    Danstar Belle Saison is a Belgian saison-style ale yeast, a breakthrough in the world of traditional dried yeasts. Get all the great esters and phenols that are so desirable in an authentic Belgian-style saison, with the convenience of dried yeast! Danstar technical analysis indicates that it does not experience the sluggishness common with "Dupont"-style strains. Full attenuation is possible within 72 hours, at pitching rate of 1 g/L (2 packs for 5 gallons), wort density of 12 Plato (1.048). Fermentation temperature should be kept above 63F - it is unknown at this time what the upper limit for this yeast strain is, but free-rising from pitch temperature is encouraged. The manufacturer recommends rehydrating this yeast - instructions are on the back of the package.


Adding 1 gallon white grape juice after high kreusen along with 71B wine yeast. Experiment time.
