Fermentis (Safebrew's patent company) says its meant for "Belgian type wheat beers, Trappists, etc."

You might want to just search around HBT for more info next time.

See their documentation here:

Where do you live? Can you order liquid yeast online? You'll be much happier if you can.

I'm not a fan of S-33 myself, and I wouldn't describe it as a "Belgian" yeast at all. AFAIK it's the Edme strain, so it's British. It produces quite a few esters, which is likely why they're trying to market it the way they are.

Safbrew T-58 is much closer to a trappist or Belgian yeast IMO, and the only dry yeast I know of that comes close to producing trappist flavors. It produces a lot of black pepper phenols, and if fermented warmer it also throws some nice fruity esters, usually bubble gum and/or banana. Not my favorite Belgian yeast, but not terrible either.

For a dry yeast in a Belgian beer, there's no need for a starter IMO. Dry yeast packets have a lot more cells than liquid, and since you're trying to get more esters out of it, underpitching slightly isn't a bad thing.

No, it is not suitable for Belgian style beers. No "Belgian" flavor about it.

Thank you all for your help.
I live in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne Australia.

As for the SAF 033 that seems to be suitable I'll keep it for some other
Type of brew and go and get SAF T 58 instead ,thank you very much.
