Default 3711 is amazing

I pitched Wyeast 3711 into my first attempt at saison and 8 days later it is still bubbling the airlock every 9 seconds, like clockwork. That is some amazing yeast. I've not not seen one ferment out for such a long time before. Has anyone else had experience with this?

i really like 3711. it's a beast. it just keeps fermenting (and it's perfect for these hot texas summer temps)

I did two brews with 3711 about a month ago. brought them both from ~1.064 to ~1.004. Just tried a bottle of the "Belgian IPA" earlier today, still not done carbonating even but that funk is delicious!

Lovely yeast. My last two beers using it went below 1.000, .997 and .998. Strangely, still leaves a nice mouthfeel and doesn't taste as dry as it is.

I did a strong sasion with 3711 and it turned out great! I'm a big fan of the ester profile, especially fermenting at 76 deg or so.

One of my top 3 favorite yeasts of all time--if I am making any type Belgian style beer and not experimenting with the yeast (e.g. trying something new) I go with 3711. My last saison went from 1.078 down to 1.008--utterly delicious!

If I could only use 3 yeasts, they'd be 3711, Pacman, and 007. I recall reading that 3711 produces glycerol (?) and that's what gives the silky mouthfeel. Love it!

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

Those would be my top 3 as well.

Great yeast. Always ferments low. Easy to use. I use it often. Finishes low but still has great mouthfeel.

I just finished bottling a Rye Saision that went from 1.058 to1.003
