Detailed fermentation temps for Belgian Ale yeasts

Here’s a list of Belgian Ale yeasts that like to ferment above the standard Ale temperature range. If you’re currently experiencing Summer or just want to brew one of the styles listed, this will be a good reference point for what’s available. I prefer to use the Wyeast liquid yeast smackpacks, but I’ve also listed the White Labs equivalents when possible. It’s important to note, these are wort temperatures not ambient temperatures. In general, the listed maximum temperature is exactly as stated on the manufacturer’s website. In the case of Wyeast’s Belgian Ardennes, many brewers have reported luck and flavorful beer even when extending the upper temperature boundary to 85°F.
