Default Wyeast Belgian 3724 yeast ???

Ok, just brewed an AG Belgian Saison using Wyeast 3724. From what I gather this yeast should be ramped. My question is what is the schedule I should follow for increasing temperature ? Is it a couple degrees every day, every other & how high should I go ? I pitched @ 69 *F & have active fermentation now after about 15 hours. Any insight on this I would def appreciate. Thnx

Raise the ambient by 2-4degrees a day until ~82f hold for a week and then let the yeast do its thing @ room temp. Still might take several weeks to finish

From what I understand, 3724 needs to be ramped up into the 80s or you will probably have a stuck fermentation. I went with 3711 on the saison I brewed yesterday as that goes nuts between 70-75 degrees.

Rumor has it that if you don't ramp it up, it'll stick at 1.036... which would be entirely too sweet for a saison.

You can finish it out with 3711 if it gets stuck and you can't ramp.

I used that yeast and brought it up to 90°. It still stopped at 1.035. I just left it sit at around 70° and it continued on by itself.

I've used both yeast. The belgian strain did not get stuck at all and I kept it below *80.
