Wyeast Belgian/Saison is the yeast of choice for classic farmhouse-style ales. This traditional yeast is spicy with a mild fruitiness. Ales made with this yeast finish with a dry, crisp, mildly-acidic, tart character that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures. This yeast has complex aromatics, including bubble gum.
This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 S.G. This is where patience comes in. Given warmth and time, this yeast will reach its final gravity. Warm fermentation temperatures at least 90F (32C) or the use of a secondary strain can accelerate attenuation.
Temperature Range: 70-95F, 21-35C
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.
