The Pont - JY014
Need your beer to be bone-dry? Then The Pont is the strain for you.
JY014 The Pont fermens your beer bone-dry and creates an effervescent and sparkling beer iwth a nice spicy and tart finish. It can produce bubblegum aromas but it is arguably the most popular saison yeast strain.
Note: This yeast can be a tricky fermenter that needs some help getting through the wort, especially at lower temperatures and higher gravities. Traditionally, these beers were allowed months to slowly ferment and mature, after primary in shallow fermenters. Keeping the gravity within reason and raising the temperature during fermentaiton (free rise without inhibitory cooling) helps to ensure completion of fermentation. Good aeration to stimulate diastatic activity, and the addition of a small amount of a neutral strain can also help and will not change the character of the beer.
This strain is STA-1 Positive.
