Default Wyeast 3711 -- I'm officially impressed

In a week, 3711 took my saison from 1.054 to 1.000. Incredible.

Now, granted, 13% of the fermentables were simple sugars (equal parts table sugar and honey), but that is really an amazing job by the yeast. The sample I tasted was just perfect, too. It probably could stand to be a little spicier, but that's what I get for only fermenting at 74F. Otherwise, the taste was just fantastic.

If you are thinking about making a saison and want just an awesome yeast, go for 3711.

I just had my pack of this yeast show up today. I'm planning on brewing next weekend with it. Actually going to make a batch and split it between WLP565, WLP566, and WY3711

Good alcohol tolerance. I wonder how high it would go? This one will get a try!

Nice. Best of luck. With those three strains, I'm sure you'll get something super tasty.

Brewed my first Saison with 3711 and letting it ferment at room temp (73-75) as we speak. Cant wait to try this one. My LBHS owner swears by this yeast and I am excited. Made a quart starter for 1.060 OG.

Used it in conjunction with 3724 to have a Saison in less than two months. It sure did it's job. Great yeast and a great resource for Saison brewers.

I have a batch going at room temperature which can get upto 80F sometimes. I am trying to see how the flavor will change at higher temperatures.

A batch I had went up to 9% no problem. I'm curious as well.

This post is very timely and very appreciated. I'm brewing a Saison a la Brewing Classic Styles (though, dialed down a bit gravity-wise). Using 3711.

Having a bit of a heat wave lately, so should be perfect.
