Wyeast 3724/3711 would be a winner. In fact, I think I heard Neva Parker from White labs say they do something very similar for one of their saison yeasts.

[edit] Jump forward to 22:50, Neva goes into some blending details. @ 23:50 she mentions the saison blend. Then go back to the beginning and watch the whole thing. She's great.

I've started experimenting with Bridgeport's method of bottle conditioning.
Ferment with ale yeast, filter and bottle with a lager yeast. Not really mixing.

I often dry out a RIS with simple sugar additions and a wine yeast. Not really mixing.

I guess I don't mix strains, why am I even responding?

I've done 1450 and 005 with good results twice. But they aren't worlds apart.

That would be a great combo. The flavor of 3724 with the finishing of 3711. 3711 is a beast and will always finish low. 3724 will finish low if you can keep ferment temps very high, but ,3711 will work at almost any temp.

That's a really good idea. I've never used 3724 just cause of its reputation of being a PITA to get the right attenuation. As far as I understand, it's much more potently phenolic than the 3711, but 3711 is such a low maintenance strain.

Next saison I do I'm gonna give it a whirl.

Don't mix them. Let the 3724 go for a week, then add the 3711.

I was thinking a couple day head start, but I could definitely do a week.

Couple of days might be OK. I've made a saison with only 3711 and it was unremarkable. The last one I made was the blend, spaced 1 week apart, and you'd swear there was apricots or something in there. 3724 throws some fruitiness. I fermented at 90, but I'd recommend keeping it below that.

I love this forum. Thanks for all the input. Not sure when yet, but I'm definitely trying one of the blend suggestions in this post.

I'm making starters of washed 1318 and 1056 separately. I'm going to cold crash them and decant the excess into a single glass to taste before I pitch them both into the stout I'm brewing tomorrow.
