Safbrew Abbaye

Postby Rolfster » Tue May 09, 2017 07:34

Hi all.

Has anyone used this dry abbaye yeast from fermentis?
Hiw did it turn out?

I picked up a packet the other day while in my LHBS the other day and am planning on using it tomorrow on a amber ish beer.
I'm particularly interested in what effects temperature will have on fermentation really.

Cheers in advance
Tim

The whole house reeked of rotten eggs for about a week!

I will do. I've read somewhere that you should just pitch and leave it ramp the temp up its self!

That is good to know! I ferment in the cellar so the smells don't normally make it out... It will be interesting to see how it goes!
How was the beer? Was it worth the smell?

It made a very nice clean beer, slight taste of sulphur for a few months
