    Anyone used this yeast for a Tripel? I'm going brew a tripel in a couple weeks and was going to try a dry yeast to see how it does. This one seems to be an attenuation monster, so it should make it nice and dry. Also has the possibility of getting some banana, which I like.

    I have used it for a dubbel and a quad, but not a tripel. But it worked well for each of them.

    Any particular flavors that you felt you got out of the yeast itself?

    I got a slight tangy aftertaste, very subtle, that balanced pretty well against the malt-forward style. The primary reason I used this yeast is that I have never had any issues with a stuck fermentation at high gravity. It ferments quickly and has a pretty high attenuation.

    I did use this for a Tripel. The flavor was not over bearing. A little pepper but not with a bite. I agree with Bubba Wade, it does work pretty fast. I harvested some to use again in another beer.
