    This sounds great. Any particular reason you let it go for so long?

    Went to the LHBS yesterday night to pick up some yeast, and the owner suggested I try some
    yeast nutrient. $3 for enough for about 75 gal, so I thought I'd give it a go.Dropped a tsp of
    it in last nig...

    I found a couple of these in the back of the brew closet the other day, and be warned - they do
    not age well. The flavor has become quite dry, and slightly sulphurous. I think maybe the

    The Wyeast French Saison IS a monster but it can tolerate cooler temps. If you you used the
    Belgian Saison strain, it likes to ferment upwards of 70*; otherwise it will just quit.Thanks
    for the heads ...

    I'll look into some of that 3711. I've never done a starter before, my understanding is I
    should mix up some sugar and water and pitch the yeast into it to give the little buggers a
    head start. Anythi...
