Hey guys, Im trying to nail a saison with similar notes to Ommegang's Hennepin. I recently gave it a first go, and while the beer is very good its missing the significant clove I get in the hennepin. I used 3711 on this batch, which is a monster and got the FG down to 1.002. Fermented it at about 68*. I would like to retain this very dry finish next time while getting the clove taste.

Any suggestions for other yeast? I was thinking about a 3711/new yeast combo to keep that crazy attenuation.

thanks
Ryan

You are right 3711 is a beast.

You might try mixing in some 3944. Maybe pitch the 3944 and let it go for a few days and then unleash the beast. I get some clove from 3944.

T-58 has clove. Another option is the East Coast Yeast ECY008 Saison Brassaire, which is a blend of 5 saison yeasts. I got a quite a bit of clove off of that yeast at 80 degrees (less than a hef yeast though)

Why not just clone the eyast out of the Hennepin bottle? That's what I'm doing right now for that exact purpose.
