This weekend I will be brewing a Saison with Belle Saison dry yeast. OG will be around 1.060 and 5.5G volume in the fermenter.

I only have 1 pack available. Is 1 pack enough for this? The calculators say 2 packs is recommended for this. Do I need to rehydrate the yeast before pitching? Any feedback from those with experience using Belle Saison is appreciated.

Treat the yeast right and one packet will be fine. My first batch with Belle Saison went below 1.000 before it quit. I finished the ferment at 80F.
