I brew a lot of saisons and it is no issue. I also use buckets and if you sanitize properly, no problems.

Saison yeast is not some super strain that will take over the world. It is just like every other yeast. Some Starsan and you are good.

If yo are picking up flaors that should not be ther it is not the yeast but a problem with your process.

Kreusen get up in the lid gasket area perhaps?

I've had this issue with 3711, but it was only aroma. I think that the plastic may hold some smells that got off-gassed by the CO2 coming out of the fermentation from the beer I brewed after the saison. The beer didn't have any saison flavor, but I was definitely afraid that it was going to be a saison. All turned out well though.

The only bad news, you guys are still fermenting in 5 gallon paint pails. I mean food grade FDA approved "buckets".

This statement would lead new brewers reading this thread to think that using buckets is not good or even bad, and that is most certainly not the case. Lots of people including myself make very good beer with buckets all of the time. I personally don't have any intention to change that. So, just to set the record straight there is nothing wrong with using buckets.

Agreed! Every beer I make is done in a 6.5gallon ale pale and they work beautifully and are easy to clean and dry hop in as well. Also relatively cheap if you take care of them they last a long time

That's why they have their own subforum!
