My only experience with this yeast saw my beer go from 15*P to 2.5*P (roughly 1.060 to 1.010)
at 65F in 3 weeks. I wouldn't call the results typical though as I have a friend who is a

When you say "Wyeast Saison" I'm assuming you mean 3724 (aka WLP565), correct? If so, get that
temperature up around 90F if you can. I know pros who pitch this yeast at 90F and let it go
with the jack...

This is with 3724 which seems to be similar. My only worry is having excessive fusels from
starting out that high, but this yeast seems to be different for a reason.Shouldn't be a
problem with proper ...

That's good advice for the Dupont strain (3724). I know a local brewery who pitches at 90F and
sees the tanks hit 98F+ before fermentation finishes. They follow with a 6 month bottle

Big aroma and flavor. and if their site is right, actually outside of the guideline for
IBUs.Keep in mind that there are various methods for calculating IBUs and that all of them are
just estimates. I...

Went to Victory yesterday and they had a fairly new beer on tap called Wild Devil. It's Hop
Devil using Brett somehow. It was very good with that sour flavor. I'd like to do this with my
IPA. Do I jus...

A coworker of mine just did a sour mash weiss. He mashed as normal in his cooler, brought the
temperature down to 120F, stirred in some crushed 2-row and screwed the lid on. After 3 days he

I can finish it with another yeast? I'm definitely interested in that. I have never used 2
yeasts in one beer. As you may have seen from the recipe, I have W1214 Belgian abby ale. What
yeast would you...

it says to start low and ramp it up two degrees a day, but both times I've tried this, I've

I'm glad I asked about it here, though, as I'm definitely interested in getting higher
attenuation, so I guess I'll add about 4 oz. of table sugar. EDIT: If I have corn sugar (that I
sometimes use for...
