French Saison 3711
The Wyeast 3711 French Saison is a very versatile strain that will enhance the use of not only spices but also of aroma hops. It is extremely attenuative but will leave an unexpected silky and rich mouthfeel. It will produce Saisons or Farmhouse Style Beers as well as other Belgian Style Beers that are highly aromatic (estery), peppery, spicy, and citrusy.
It can be used to restart stuck fermentation or in high gravity beers.
Optimal Temperature Range: 65-77 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 styles:
- Biere de Garde
- Belgian Golden Strong Ale
- Belgian Dark Strong Ale
- Belgian Blond Ale
- Belgian IPA
