Key Features

This strain is the classic farmhouse ale yeast

Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison Yeast is a classic farmhouse ale strain. It is spicy with complex aromatics including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. Expect a crisp, mildly acidic finish that benefits from elevated fermentation temperatures. 

Recommended style: Saison. 

Flocculation: Low

Attenuation: 76-80

Temperature: 70-95

ABV: up to 12%

Tips and Tricks:

This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 S.G. Fermentation will finish, given time and warm temperatures. Warm fermentation temperatures at least 90°F (32°C) or the use of a secondary strain can accelerate attenuation.

  1. makes a great saison

    This yeast is a bit tricky. But you go against your intuition with this one and you'll be rewarded with a great tasting saison. I started out getting this thing all the way down to pitching temp of 73ish degrees. I wish I wouldn't have after a day or two I turned the heat up and ended up fementing for about 3 + weeks at 85 degrees, this time i'm gonna chill to just below 90 and then pitch and leave sitting out in my garage and see what happens. It can and does get stuck, just leave it be and after awhile it'll begin eating away at the tasty wort making a delightful farmhouse ale.

    I used this for a Saison that started at 1.060, after a month in the primary it had dropped to 1.009. Still tasted sweet, wanted to drop it further. Left it in secondary for two weeks with no drop in gravity, added Brett C to bring down gravity and improve dryness. End result on bottled beers was great. All reports are correct, this is a tough strain to get to work, I had it at 74 degrees for primary fermentation and I dont think it was hot enough. Tastes better than 3711 though.

  3. Great Saison Yeast
    Rating
    Like prior review, it was hard to get it to fully drop the specific gravity. Beer started with an OG of 1.060, then hung out at 1.035 during primary fermentation at 73 degrees. I moved it outside during secondary and it got it back working again. Finished beer tastes awesome. So basically, if you use it, keep it HOT and you'll get the best results.
