I'm looking to produce high gravity strong Trappist like beer. Wyeast 3787 seems to be a good choice, but I'm looking for a dry yeast alternative. Suggestions?

I'll make a starter before pitching if required.

  • Is there something more specific regarding WY3787 you could ask? Your question is looking for generalities and opinions. Not something that fits in the SE Q&A format.

  • Wyeast 3787 is one of the recommend yeast for trappist according to my knowledge. However, it comes as a "liquid" yeast. Building one or to starter or pitching a lot of packs is required for high gravity beers. This is why I would like to use a dry yeast : generally less costly, and more active yeast cell by ml easily.

This one might be an option for you. I have not used it myself, but read in various forums that it is a good option.



I think that a Fermentis Safbrew T-58 would be a close match.
