French Saison Wyeast


Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 65-83
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 85-95
Flocculation : Low
Alcohol Tolerance : 12%

Pitching/Fermentation : Very temperature tolerant, very fast, very very highly attenuative. Lower in overall ester production compared to other saison yeasts, less fruit and subtle spice. Awesome with hops.

Notes : A very versatile strain that produces Saison or farmhouse style biers as well as other Belgian style beers that are highly aromatic (estery), peppery, spicy and citrusy. This strain enhances the use of spices and aroma hops, and is extremely attenuative but leaves an unexpected silky and rich mouthfeel. This strain can also be used to restart stuck fermentations or in high gravity beers.

Best Styles :  Belgian Blond Ale, Belgian Dark Strong Ale, Belgian Golden Strong Ale, Belgian Specialty Ale, Bière de Garde, Saison

Liquid Yeast Substitution : n/a
Dry Yeast Substitution : Nottingham, BRY-97 American West Coast Ale Yeast (Danstar), Abbaye Ale Yeast (Danstar)

Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth. If anything beginning brewers should start with yeast starters. When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter

Perfect for Basic Saisons
I bought this strain of yeast in order to help kickstart a stalled fermentation that I had utilized the Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison (which tends to be more finicky). This solved the issue, as fermentation started up again, and my SG started dropping again to expected levels. If you are looking for a more basic Saison (that doesn't perhaps have as strong mouthfeel and taste as a Belgian-style), I'd definitely go for this strain.

Killer attenuator, great mouthfeel
While this may not be my top choice of yeast for a classic, Dupont-style saison, this is one of my favorite yeast strains. The fermentation character is mainly citrus/fruit, with only a hint of the typical peppery saison-spice. But the true beauty of this yeast is that it ferments bone dry (most beers finish in the 1.004-1.006 range), yet still leaves a nice, full mouthfeel. It also finishes with a hint of tartness, leaving the impression of a dry/juicy white wine. The last 2-3 gravity points tend to come off slowly, so I'd recommend allowing an 5-7 days in primary beyond your typical ale fermentation schedule to make sure it is completely finished. This yeast is not finicky, and does not require high fermentation temps like some other saison strains. It will ferment perfectly well in the mid 60's.
