Belgian Saison 3724
The Wyeast 3724 is the classic farmhouse ale yeast. It is a traditional yeast that is spicy with complex aromatics, including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. You should expect a crisp, mildly acidic finish that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures.
It is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 SG; fermentation will finish when given time and warm temperatures. Warm fermentation temperatures (think at least 90F) or the use of a secondary strain can accelerate attenuation.
Optimal Temperature Range: 70-95 F
Notes: This Wyeast yeast strain has been classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus using rapid PCR analysis. This strain carries the STA1 gene, which is the “signature” gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and will be found in all diastaticus strains.
This is a great choice for the following style:
