3724 is known to get stuck at 1.030---just needs lots of time. I've heard of several people who use 3724 and then dry it out with another strain. I've contemplated doing the same thing but honestly don't mind wait. 3724 will finish if given time and heat (and maybe a swirl every now and then).

Yea, I think he's tired of waiting. It's been going for a while.

He added the 3711 yesterday. He emailed me this morning and said it's bubbling away again.

Finally took a gravity reading on my Saison last night, 3711 is a monster. It finished real, real low. The sample was tasty and reminds me a bit of Great Divide's Colette (I was shooting for a similar straw-like yellow SRM ~4). I can't wait to have this carbed up with a nice farmy head!

What is real, real low?

Kegged my 3711 Saison today after 3+ weeks. Refractometer reading indicated that it got down to 1.0015 (1.001) which is amazing. Did not taste a sample but it sure smelled nice. Anxious to taste it in a week or so. Montanaandy

How do you measure gravity with such precision?

I just bottled my saison with 3711, finished at 1.004, very dry, tart and little funk. I just pitched a Belgian Strong Ale onto the cake, and in 4 hours it was off again like a rocket. First time with this yeast, so far I am impressed!
I expect many a happy night from these little guys!
