I plan on brewing a Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre clone in a few weeks and would like to know how WLP530 will work with the batch. The recipe calls for 3522 Belgian Ardennes/WLP550 Belgian Ale Yeast.
Saisons, Belgian Ales, Belgian Reds, Belgian Browns, and White beers are just a few of the classic Belgian beer styles that can be created with this yeast strain. Phenolic and spicy flavors dominate the profile, with less fruitiness then WLP500.
Attenuation - 78-85%
Flocculation - Medium
Optimum Ferment Temp - 68-78°F
Alcohol Tolerance - Medium-High
Used to produce Trappist style beers. Similar to WLP500, but is less fruity and more alcohol tolerant (up to 15% ABV). Excellent yeast for high gravity beers, Belgian ales, dubbels and trippels.
Attenuation - 75-80%
Flocculation - Medium to High
Optimum Ferment Temp - 66-72°F
Alcohol Tolerance - High
