Default WYEAST 3724 Belgian Saison

All I gotta say is this yeast takes a while to ferment out...Finally mine as finished fermenting around a month or so it sat in the primary. BUT the flavor profile is GREAT!!!

Amen brutha!

If you start it really hot, and keep it there, it works a lot faster though.

I had it pretty hot...I wrapped the thing in a warming lanket on the 2nd day and kept it there for about 3 weeks. My final gravity was at 1.013

man...My Saison has been sitting in the Fermenter for 2.5 weeks and its right there at 1.030. I have it in the house at around 75 degrees, which I realize is on the low side...but don't really have much of a way to keep it hot? Its about 100 outside...I may just leave it on the back porch for a week or so?

That would be what I would suggest. Get a tub of water or something to put the fermenter in so that it keeps any big temperature swings from creating a bad environment for the yeast.

Are you talking about a electric blanket that one would use for a bed? Then you just wrap it around the carboy and keep it set on low?
