WLP568 Belgian Style Saison Blend
This blend melds Belgian style ale and saison strains. The strains work in harmony to create complex, fruity aromas and flavors. The blend of yeast strains encourages complete fermentation in a timely manner. Phenolic, spicy, earthy, and clove like flavors are also created.
The trick to fermenting a Saison is to pitch at 66-68F and raise it 1-2 degrees per day until you get to 85F. Yes, that is correct...85F! This yeast is so moody that you have to keep giving it warmth towards the end because it gets lazy and wants to go to sleep. Hold at 85F for 3-5 days until terminal gravity is reached then transfer off of yeast bed to bottling bucket or keg.
Fermentation Temperature: 70-85F
Wyeast Equivalent: None
