BELLE SAISON BELGIAN SAISON-STYLE YEAST
Belle Saison is a Belgian-style ale yeast selected specifically for its ability to create Saison-style beers. Belle Saison lets brewers create Saison-styles easily and with all the expected characteristics noted for this classic style. Classified as a Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and designed for warm-temperature fermentation true to traditional production methods, beers brewed with Belle Saison exhibit the “Farmhouse” flavors and aromas making for fruity, spicy and refreshing beer.
For best practices when using Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus strains please download our “best practices” diastaticus document under the Technical Data Sheet section.
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at
20°C (68°F) CBC-1 yeast exhibits:
Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 3 days
Neutral aroma and flavor
CBC-1 does not utilize the sugar maltotriose (a molecule composed of 3 glucose units), and the result will be fuller body and residual sweetness in beer. Be advised to adjust mash temperatures
according to desired result
The optimal temperature for primary fermentation with CBC-1 yeast when
producing traditional styles is 20°C(72°F)
Best used for refermentation purpose conducted preferably with priming sugars such as dextrose.
Refermentation can be completed in 2 weeks at the recommended temperatures.
The optimal temperature range for CBC-1 yeast when refermenting is 15°C(59°F) to 25°C(77°F).
CBC-1 contains an adequate reservoir of carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids, and cell division (typically one division) is likely to occur in the bottle.
Temperature and inoculation rate can be adapted in order to achieve desired results. If the beer is partially carbonated, the sugar addition can be reduced.
