      It does occur to me that I will likely be able to tell if the Saison strains are working... I'm at 1.009 now, and I doubt the Philly...

      In this case I can't co-pitch because the 2nd yeast would outcompete the Philly. But I think I could pitch sooner and pitch a healthier...

      I've read that too. Let's not forget the organism that gets the head start will (try) outcompete any others, it's the quest for...

      Have you ever heard of a specific Saison strain that tolerates low pH? Seems like 3711 and Be-134 are NOT up to the task.

      A separate fermentation may indeed be the way to go. Maybe I will try splitting the batch next time.

      The manufacturer says the Philly has to be pitched first or it will be outcompeted by the other yeast... But I had not considered that...

      All good strategies to implement. Or perhaps give the Saison a good head start before introducing Philly Sour, with or without adding...

      It is possible the 3711 and be-134 are working, of course, though it's impossible to tell. There is definitely yeast in suspension. So...

      Do you think a massive pitch could have overcome this? I usually pitch big, but this one was at 1.028 when I pitched the 3711, so I...

      Might be the way I will have to go... Or maybe I pitch the Saison sooner next time, before the pH gets so low...

      i dont think there's a simple answer to the yeast question. but if i had done this and was making a second batch, i think i'd pitch...

      Adding some sugar isn't a bad idea... The Philly Sour will keep working, but I need the saison to kick in. I will try a bit of corn...

      Yeah the only stuff that'll normally play ball at pH ~3.5 is things like Brettanomyces. For a sour Saison you'd have been much better...

      Will do. Thanks much!

      What you're probably seeing here is a combination of acid shock to the 3711 and minimal fermentable sugar for 3711 to consume. At this...
