Default Dry yeast for Saison?

Well my order has come and like a dope I forgot to order the WLP565.

Dry yeast I have on hand

1. Safbrew T-58
2. Safale 33
3. Saflager 34/70
4. Nottingham

I also have a jar of washed WLP004

Out of these I am leaning towards the T-58 as its profile is spicy with peppery taste. I know it wont be a true Saison but maybe something interesting.

Without saison yeast, it won't be a saison. The spiciness you get is entirely yeast-derived.

That T-58 is probably your best bet.

thanks, that what I was thinking. I am getting the itch to brew and this weekend is perfect wife is away.So I may just throw some type of ale together with the grain and hops I have and leave the Saison for another time. I could order the 565 this weekend from AHS .

If you can get ahold of a Saison beer you can culture from the bottle, I sucessfully did that with a 12oz bottle of Saison Dupont, worked out great, if you're in a pinch.

well I tried to grow some yeast from a bottle ....



And it worked after 36 hours this is what I had. Left side Hennepin by Ommegang - right Saison Dupont.Sorry for the crappy pic was in a rush this morning.



I personally liked the Hennepin over the Dupont. I will stepping up the starters tonight to have enough by Sundays brew. I was thinkinig of just pitching the two into the same container of new 1.040 wort.

what did you end up doing with regard to the 2 yeast strains? Did you use them both?

I wasnt able to brew this weekend as my Son in Law was taken to the hospital on Sunday with a severe head ache to the point he was unresponsive.They have been doing tests on him since . My daughter and my 3 week old grandson are staying with us.


Since both are Belgian Saison beers I did end pitching them together in a larger starter.I let it do its thing and put it in the fridge this am .The Saison's taste was very simular between the two so I didnt see a problem....
