White Labs WLP500 Monastery Ale – Sourced from a Belgian monastery, this strain is ideal for Belgian quads, tripels and dubbels due to its high alcohol tolerance. It produces characteristic notes of plum and cherry with a hint of bubble gum. Lower fermentation temperatures (65-67°F/18-19°C) result in less fruity and more earthy beers.
