Duly noted. Well I will still plan on taking a gravity reading and see where I am at. Thanks for the input. Montanaandy

I'm glad to hear this. While I really like the brew I made with 3711, it was a little intense and I've had it aging for a few weeks now. I intend on trying it again in a month or so.

Good to know! I was wondering about that. It finishes so quickly it makes it tempting to bottle right away. I think I will bulk age for 5-6 weeks then give it another 3 weeks in bottles.

I just kegged a Pacific Saison AG kit from AHS. I used Wyeast 3724. The first week in primary my beer stayed in the 80's (I don't have temp control for fermentation) The weather cooled things off the last two weeks in primary so I was a bit worried. My hydrometer read 1.010 and the beer was nice and clear so I went ahead and kegged. Beer tasted excellent! This yeast didn't give me any problems dropping out of suspension or stalling out. I was quite pleased with the results.

Edit: the OG of this beer was 1.044. In the end this beer was a bit phenolic, it was a bit medicinal in the aftertaste but not what I would call "band-aid" tasting. I'm not sure if this came from chlorine in my water or if it was just a by product of the yeast which is typical in belgian yeasts.

The last batch of saison I brewed last summer was in the fermenter for nearly a month when I was ready to bottle it, then we had a fruit fly outbreak in my area and they were all over the place and I was afraid to open the fermenter and do anything with the beer. By the time they were gone, it was 2 months in the fermenter for my saison. It was fantastic right from the get-go after I bottled it.

that may be due to higher gravity. my og was 1.042 and i don't get any sharpness from it. it was in the primary for 10 days or so and has only been bottled for about a week, tastes pretty nice for such a young beer.

Another good point. A lower OG would lend itself to being ready more rapidly than one with a higher OG. I will have to check my notes to see where my OG was at. From what I recall it was fairly high but I may be confusing it with the 3724. Montanaandy

I made a goof with my most recent batch. My recipe has an OG of 1.067 and I nailed it exactly. Then today realized that the 1.067 is including the sugar addition I do after fermentation starts to taper off. Trying to decide if I wanna go ahead with that or not. It's only 1 lb after all.

yeah, I'm leaning towards adding it just because I did last time and it came out perfect. That'll move the OG from 1.067 to 1.076. If it gets down to 1.000 for the FG again I'm going to be a bit
