Origin of Wyeast 3822
« on: November 07, 2016, 07:39:41 PM »
I`ve been brewing lately with the Wyeast PC: 3822 Belgian dark ale. It`s a great yeast: attenuation is great, yeast stick tot the bottom and nice yeast profile.

However I`m curious about the origin of this yeast strain. It`s used to be called Dutch Castle or Ingelmunster. However I brewed a Belgian dark ale and the yeast profile is different from Kasteel beers.

Does anyone have any idea?

Have you tried contacting Wyeast with your question? I bet they are willing to assist.

I probably brew differently than you. If that makes you angry or somehow ruins home brewing for you, maybe you need a less stressful hobby than making and drinking beer.
