I went with some friends this weekend to brew with them again on their 7 BBL system. Why knocked out a Saison and pitched the Fermentis T-58.

I took 6 gallons home in a carboy and 5 hours later i walked by and noticed what can only be described as insanely crazy angry fermentation!!!! This bad boy was not getting going after 5 hours it was balls out fermenting. I have not seen an airlock with this kind of activity and i have made alot of beer. If the flavor profile impresses as much as the quick ferment start i am going to love this yeast.

Has anyone else used this stuff before?

I actually used the T-58 for the first time on my SMaSH (Munich 10L + EKG) and it was a really awesome surprise. Probably one of my best experiences with dry yeast. The complexity that was achieved from those 4 ingredients was crazy. In fact, I took a bottle down to my little brother's graduation party last weekend, and poured him a pint. He took a few sips and was really diggin' it...and asked me what spices I put into it...when I told him that it was 1 grain, one hop and dry yeast, his mouth hit the floor.

If your experience is anything like mine, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Now, I don't remember the fermentation being any more violent than most, but I brew so much...who knows.

I have some of this. I wonder if it would be over the top in peppery flavor for something like my Sterling Gold.

It already has coriander, orange peel and cracked black pepper in the bill.

ferment low muncher, around 70. i bet that would lessen the peppery taste.

I have mine sitting in a 75 degree room and the temp of the carboy is at 80. I can not wait!

This is a good yeast. I use it for a few things. I have experienced the fermentation you mention. Unlike the S-33, which I swear I have never seen the airlock bubble and I always think it isn't working. But when I measure gravity, it is finished...lol.



Evan!, you are approaching 6,666.

After pitching sunday and a crazy fermentation it seems this Saison yeast is going to go the way of the others. It seems to have stalled at 1.014. I know it has only been 5 days but there is zero airlock activity. i will check it again in 4 days and see if it has dropped anymore.
