What % of attenuation are you getting out of this yeast? It says 73% in my brewing apps.
Gary Layton on Apr 12, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I've brewed with it a couple times and averaged 76.5%. That was pitching 1 pack in 5.75 gallons with no aeration.

Great yeast!
I used this for a batch of Patersbier recently. The character was great! I pitched it directly into the primary and oxygenated the chilled wort and it took off within 8 hours. Fermented down to 1.009. Great abbaye ale smell and flavor. I will use it again!

For All Belgian Ale Styles
I've used this yeast in Belgian blond, tripel, dubbel, pale, and even witbier. Solid results in all. Works well at normal and high fermentation temps (up to low-80s). Lots of flavor.

Great for Strongs and Tripels
I used to use T-58 for my Golden Strong and Tripel, but switched to Abbaye and love the results. Average start time of fermentation, attenuates well (FG 1.007 on the Strong), and flocs out OK as you'd expect from a Belgian strain. Great flavor profile that is not as spicy as the T-58. ***I would like to note that the three packets I ordered were expired when I received them as another review mentioned. I took photos and sent an email to MoreBeer customer support. They asked if I wanted a refund or replacement. I went with the replacement and new yeast showed up on my doorstep in no time. Great customer service.Thanks!***
