French Saison Wyeast


Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 65-83
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 85-95
Flocculation : Low
Alcohol Tolerance : 12%

Pitching/Fermentation : Very temperature tolerant, very fast, very very highly attenuative. Lower in overall ester production compared to other saison yeasts, less fruit and subtle spice. Awesome with hops.

Notes : A very versatile strain that produces Saison or farmhouse style biers as well as other Belgian style beers that are highly aromatic (estery), peppery, spicy and citrusy. This strain enhances the use of spices and aroma hops, and is extremely attenuative but leaves an unexpected silky and rich mouthfeel. This strain can also be used to restart stuck fermentations or in high gravity beers.

Best Styles : Belgian Blond Ale, Belgian Dark Strong Ale, Belgian Golden Strong Ale, Belgian Specialty Ale, Bière de Garde, Saison

Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth. If anything beginning brewers should start with yeast starters. When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter

Love this yeast, it's my go to Saison yeast

This yeast is a monster. It will go through all the simple sugars it will start on the dextrose. I'll let this yeast go for two to two and a half weeks. It usually finishes at .006 to .002 with wonderful favor.

Wyeast 3711

Used in a small yeast starter. Worked slowly, but steady for 10-12 days. Got FG down to 1.003! Excellent spice notes as promised in product description.

Bill Somrak
Great attenuation

3711 will tear thru wort like Sherman went thru Georgia. My Saisons usually finish about 1.003 with it, but I had a friend do a Saison with this yeast & it finished at 0.995 ! You can make a good Saison even using LME with this yeast.

Steven Ross
Beast of a yeast

Used it to brew my first saison. What a monster yeast! I made a starter and fermentation took off within 12 hours. It took my gravity from 1.058 to 1.002, with >96% attenuation. I let the fermentation temp free rise, with highest temp around 80F. This yeast also has a great spicy flavor with lots of fruit. I will definitely use his yeast again for my next saison.

Alexander Jones
Perfect for Basic Saisons

I bought this strain of yeast in order to help kickstart a stalled fermentation that I had utilized the Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison (which tends to be more finicky). This solved the issue, as fermentation started up again, and my SG started dropping again to expected levels. If you are looking for a more basic Saison (that doesn't perhaps have as strong mouthfeel and taste as a Belgian-style), I'd definitely go for this strain.
