Default T-58 results

From reading the comments above, it sounds like temperture control is crucial for getting good results on this yeast.

I pitched this on my Belgian Pale Ale in the low-70's and then put in my fermentation fridge targeting a low 60's fermentation temp. The next morning, the beer was reading 61-F, and stayed in the low 60's for 15 days, then I let it warm to 69-F for a week.

It's carb'd and in the keg for 2 weeks now, and tastes really good. I agree with Bob, that it is somewhere between a clean fermenting ale yeast and a belgian funk yeast. At these low temps, I get some phenol spiceness, clove mainly, but not overpowering. Just a tiny bit of fruitiness, but really subdued. Also a bit of brown sugar. A very enjoyable & clean Belgian character, but nowhere near a Duvel or Corsendonk type of yeast... at least, not in the low-60's. I'd use it again.

For what it is worth, my recipe was:

Err, now you tell me! (;->)

Is there a particular strain you think this is closer to? Or is it a kind of blend?

I should also mention I'm not necessarily expecting it to turn out like Duvel, but I am hoping for a clean, dry finish, which is something I haven't been able to achieve thus far (and have assumed it was due to an inability to control the temperature -- in particular the ramp-up).

I pitched at 64~66 early yesterday in the wee hours. By 5pm it was bubbling nicely. I attached the ferm wrap and dialed in 68. When I came downstairs this morning, it was at 71 (presumably of its own accord).

The key word with this yeast is peppery. If you don't like the idea of black pepper flavor in the beer, then I wouldn't use it.

That said I made a pretty good stout with it. The roasty and peppery flavors complement each other and even bring out a nice smokey flavor I wouldn't have otherwise gotten from the recipe. And it turned over very quickly, plus the "stalling" at 1.010 issue doesn't strike me as a problem with a stout.

10 lb 2 row
1 lb roasted barely
1/2 lb chocolate
1/2 lb wheat
1/2 lb crystal 80L

1.5 kent goldings @ 60
1.5 kent goldings @ 20

Fermented 9 days in primary
Kegged today and tastes roasty, peppery, smoky
