Safbrew T-58 Belgian

Any one have any luck with this yeast? I'm thinking about brewing up a Saison and using it.

It makes a pretty good Wit.

Very estery at Saison temps (banana, bubblegum). May work better below 65F.

I would not recommend letting it get that low. A while back I did a Belgian Pale Ale that used T-58 and I let it get down to 62F but the yeast crapped out wayyyy early. The beer is drinkable but it is definitely much too sweet.

Interesting. It's worked fine for me in the 62-65 range.

Re: Safbrew T-58 Belgian

I haven't tried it yet myself (on a long list of things to try), but I know that De Struise uses this as pretty much their house yeast. So that should be an indication of the quality of beers that can be made with it.

Maybe I should drink that Pannepot I have at home later. ;)

Re: Safbrew T-58 Belgian

We love the T-58 around here. My bro and I even used it in an experimental "Sundae Stout" that had bananna, vanilla, and chocolate added. The yeast gave the stout the perfect dryness and accentuated the bananna flavoring. We've also used it for wit. Awesome, dependable, and you can't beat the price. I always keep a packet of it on hand.
