Belgian Leffe All Grain, but what yeast?
« on: March 17, 2018, 04:47:27 AM »

Hi

I bought a all-grain kit klone of an Belgian Leffe. i got it for a good price since there was no yeast With the pack.

what kind of yeast is good for this kind of beer/ale ?

i have three kind of yeast in stock: 10g californian Lager yeast , HMB yeast from Muntons and i have 11,5g US-05.

reccomendations?   others?

Well, you can't go wrong with an all purpose yeast like US-05.  In a way, it may be best since it's definitely less tempermental than most belgian strains.

"you can say that again mr.garrison  -quote south park


well, then i`m glad i made that choice. it`s bubbeling evenly and has already a nice krausen.


will it do mutch difference to put the beer in a secondary fermenter after 7 days?

the instructions says so, but i have never bothered with than with my ecstracts, since this is my first all-grain i`m open for advice.


thank you

yeah i skip secondary too, unless i am adding fruit to let it age. but that was for sour beer :)
i think some guys add fruit right to primary, i did a blueberry porter a few years back and i did rack on top of them, didnt want to dump them on top and splash the beer and add O2.
i usually do primary 14-21 days then keg/bottle, 21 days if im being lazy  :D
