Wyeast 3711 French Saison Yeast - Made an incredibly peppery and spicy Saison with this one. Can't wait to make another batch with it.

Wyeast 3787 Trappist High Gravity - Smooth with a touch of fruity. Made a delicious Patersbier as well as a very nice Tripel with this one. It's a top-cropper so it blows of like a madman but is well worth the trouble.
