LOVE THIS YEAST! Just racked my 1.068 OG saison from the 3711 cake onto 6 lbs. fresh pasteurized apricots 7 days ago. I have made this recipe 6 times now. This yeast has produced beer for me that exhibits a ridiculously high degree of consistency. Since I dialed in the recipe, I have detected almost no variation between the 6 batches I have made, keeping the fermentation temperature +/- 2 F for all the batches

Now it's got a nice citrus funk to it. No krausen but it looks like a super carbonated beer with no head! Phenomenal!

That's all I'm really shooting for anyway, since I've never had Yeti. Most of my beer experience was Sam Adams until I started brewing my own. I mashed at 156, didn't boil off enough water (3.5 gallons instead of 3) but hit 87% eff instead of 80%, so the only thing a little lacking will be the hops levels. I pitched a stepped up 1 qt starter at about 30 hours into 82* wort and sat it in my ferm chamber. I forgot how minimal lag time would be because I usually cold crash my starters, and was missing a half gallon of head space, so I woke up to a mess. At least it was down to 68 by that time. I'll try to keep it cool for a little longer and then let it go.
