I am planning on doing a Saison/Farmhouse Ale. After buying the wrong yeast last week, it got put off. I was planning on using 3711 for this, but my LHBS doesn't carry it. After reading about the wyeast Belgian Saison strain, I decided to not use it. My LHBS guy suggested 3787. I plan on fermenting on the high end of this yeast tolerance (about 78 F).
Will this yeast work out well for this style?
This is the recipe I was planning on using.
