Fermentis Safale™ BE-256 active dry yeast is recommended to brew a diversity of beers among which abbey style beers known for their high alcohol content.
Fermentis Safale™ BE-256 ferments very fast and reveals subtle and well-balanced aromas.
To maintain the aromatic profile at the end of the fermentation, we do recommend to crop this yeast as soon as possible after fermentation.

- 0 g/l*
*0g maltotriose/L corresponding to an apparent attenuation of 90%
Pitching rate instructions:
50 to 80 g/100 litres (10g – 16g per 20L)
- Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 25 to 29°C (77°F to 84°F).
- Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes.
- Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
- Pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps.
- Leave for 30 minutes, then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
