This. It doesn't require extreme measures like some Saison yeasts!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I'm brewing a saison this weekend, and I'll be using a special release from Austin/White Labs called Classic Saison Yeast Blend, WLP560... I'm hoping it works out well!

I love this yeast! It can even handle cool temps pretty well and keeps chugging along

Although I could go either way on many Jester King beers their beers use a saison strain from some French brewery and it has a really good blend of pepper and lemon that might be good if you can culture some out of the bottle.

That's very likely Wyeast 3711.

3711 is easier to use. It is not so temp sensitive. 3724 has great flavor but requires good temp control to get it to finish. If you have a way to get it to the high 80's or even 90 the flavor is great.

I use the both a lot.
