WLP566 Saison 2 Ale Yeast This strain is a moderate phenol producer with clove-like flavor and aromatic notes present in finished beer. Some fruit-forward ester production provides a balance between fruit and spice aroma and flavors. This strain ferments and flocculates well, making it an easy-to-use option for saison and farmhouse ales. **This strain has been genetically typed at White Labs using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Through this genetic testing, White Labs has determined WLP565 Belgian Saison I Yeast to contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.
