Have taken this yeast to 8+ generations and had consistent awesome flavor profiles.

 

THEY AREN'T KIDDING WHEN THE SAY FERMENTS FASTER THAN WL565....

By: FinalMileBrewingCo | Date: Jul., 25th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed:Belgian Saison

 

Brewed a Saison this past weekend with O.G. of 1.062 and 4 days later it was down to 1.007. Moved it to my garage to warm up to about 80 and let if have fun in a warm secondary. I'm excited to see how this yeast finishes out.

 

NO FUSS SAISON STRAIN!

By: JimmyRay5150 | Date: Jun., 23rd 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed:Saison

 

I highly recommend this yeast for a no fuss saison. Pitched into aerated 1.062 wort at 66 degrees and let the fermentor free rise to 68 for the first 24 hours then went up 1 degree each day thereafter till it hit 78 degrees then held it there for the remainder of fermentation. Vigorous activity for 3 days and when I checked gravity it had already dropped to 1.023. Left it alone for another 2 weeks before crashing. FG was 1.006. Flavor is good balance of peppery spicy phenolics with just a little bit of juicy fruit underneath them. Aroma is classic Saison. I would say this is a very easy yeast to use and probably does not need any temp control if you don't have it. Great yeast for a first saison or for a beggining brewer that wants a no fuss yeast with alot of character. I'm am looking forward to repitching this into a hoppy Saison next weekend to see how it does on the second generation.
