I got the very last pack at my LHBS on Wed. I won't be brewing my saison until the second weekend in sept, but I wanted to get my hands on the 3711 before it was all gone. Can't wait!

I'm considering washing mine, though I don't think I'll make a saison again until spring at the earliest.

Anyone in the PNW want some jars of washed 3711?

Smells great, I'm taking a reading tomorrow...
Isn't 1.080 a little....high for a Saison? Sounds more like a Bier de Garde.

Right on the edge of the BJCP guidelines for the style. They say 1.048 - 1.080.

The 2008 BJCP style guidelines here says 1.048-1.065.

Ahhh, my link was the last set of guidelines. Call it an Imperial Saison then. Oh well, mine came out a few points over too.

yeah- I way, way overshot it. No argument here. I was not expecting the eighties for og.

Just thought it sounded like fun to make a big beer that day and it was that week that the temp was 103 here in seattle so I naturally thought saison.

Bier De Garde huh? I'm cool with that.

1.056 down to 1.004 in 7 days for me, this yeast attenuates like a hero. Word around the campfire is that Wyeast will be making this available year round in 2010.

I just brewed up 11 gallons of a Saison using the 3711. Overshot my gravity a bit. Estimated at 1.065, Measured OG at 1.075. Used oxygenator for a couple minutes and pitched 2 smack packs. I am a little worried that this is not enough yeast. I usually use a starter, but should I be worried with using only 2 smackpacks? My real question is: I am thinking about throwing another yeast pack in a couple of days, is this necessary?
