GigaYeast Golden Pear Belgian GY048 is a traditional yeast from the originator of the Belgian Golden Strong Ale style. Robust attenuation makes this yeast an excellent choice for low or high gravity belgian and farmhouse style ales. Leaves a dry, slightly tart finish with an estery profile reminiscent of apple and pear with a subdued level of spicy phenolics. This yeast produces a moderate amount of sulfide that will dissipate quickly with conditioning.

* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 21˚C (70˚F) and Lager yeast at 10˚C (50˚F). Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato (1.057 - 1.065 SG) High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato (1.096 - 1.106 SG). † The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 20˚ – 22˚C (68˚ – 72˚F) and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 7˚ – 14˚C (45˚ – 58˚F). If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 18 - 20˚C (65-68˚F) and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
