How have you pitched 3711 in the past? Did you use a starter with the higher gravity you referenced or did you just pitch direct?

Wrap that thing with a blanket to keep the temps up! It'll motor through fermentation in under 5 days if you do. Good luck
Yeah I was using tastybrew's calculator, estimating 81% attenuation per the Wyeast specs on 3711. Seems like from everyone's responses, Wyeast is low-balling the attenuation rate...

I always used 3711 for my saison, and I freely admit that I never make a starter.

I recently made a "light" saison - 1.035. Dropped to 1.000. Added 300g grated ginger (10gallon batch) at 10 mins. Its one of my tastier brews. Very refreshing.
I used pale 2 row and 20% wheat and Styrians at 60mins, 30mins and 5mins to 20IBU.

Chschrecat - I'm just curious since you don't use a starter - what kinda flavors are you getting outta this yeast by underpitching? spicy/fruity/lots of phenolics?

I get a lot of pepper and citrus flavors and a little bit of almost Orval-like funk.

I brewed a saison thursday using WY3711. OG was 1.060, gravity was 1.020 Saturday, and I expected something like 1.010 or so today. Its 1.000 exact. Down to zero in four days. Holy moly that yeast is a freak indeed. I made a large starter.
