Just dropped in my cascade hops. This sucker has been fermenting strong for the past two weeks. From reading other entries, 3711 does wonders in a short amount of time. I'm gonna give it 7 to 10 more days and take a FG reading. Will be bottling with 4.5 oz. of corn sugar once 1.006 is reached. Any thoughts?
I have used 3711 a lot.
I think it is a low floc yeast and needs time to clear so I usually leave it for 4-5 weeks before I check it. Let it do it 's thing. I does ferment low so it will give great results.
I love Saisons and have 3 different ones in bottles now and getting ready to do another one.
