“Clean and clear, a natural to pair with oak”

By: Alex G. | Date: Mar., 12th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

I brewed a variation of Stan Hieronymus' Number 8 with this yeast.
Dropped in a Barrel Mill American oak spiral, medium plus toast, in the secondary for six weeks.

I think this yeast accentuates the hop flavor, is clean and neutral, no fruitiness, not overly dry, clears well, and really brought out the flavor of the oak.

I will be using this one again very soon.
