Default Something I learned about Saisons

I fermented in a bucket.

I washed the bucket, let some cleanser sit in it for a week. Next brew day I santized it and re-used it. The next beer (a bitter) still smells a bit like a Saison.

The bucket now says "for Saison use only".

Lesson learned.

...or maybe you let the fermenting temperature get a good bit too high on the newer beer, and it created some funky off-flavors? Saison yeast is no more resilient than any other strain...

Exactly my thought. I've used the same plastic carboy for Saison, Kölsch, IPA, and more with no flavor carryover.

Don't think that is it, I controlled my temp to 62 when I fermented. Interesting both of you had no issues. No big deal for me just to use the bucket for Saison's though, they are relatively inexpensive, the beauty of using buckets.

I've been using the same buckets for years brewing many different styles and like the others I have never had one beer resemble a prior beer because of a bucket or the yeast strain used

Under pitching can sometimes produce certain phenols as well. Hmm.

This is me too!

Every once in a while when my buckets seem to be getting discolored and smelly I do a soak with mild bleach solution. Then I do a soak with hot oxiclean to make sure no chlorine from the bleach stays behind. After that treatment my buckets become bright white again and have only a faint beer smell. This process is probably overkill, but I still do it.

No issues here either. I think it's just you
