I love this yeast, it's reliable and gives great results every time. Has a unique flavor that I find is complimented with a little fruit to make a refreshing summertime brew.

Total monster!
Brewed 2 saisons, one finished 1.003, the other 1.004. This is a total monster of a yeast. Both were fermented at the upper end (~80F). Very impressive....

Super yeast
Brewed a "loaded" black saison 1.072 to 1.004 in 12 days. Then a Farmhouse ale same great results. After a month in the bottle... tastes great!!!

3711 is a sexy beast!
I'm making a base beer loosely inspired by hoegarden, to which I will add fresh mango puree from my tree during secondary. 3711 should give me a nice crisp and dry beer to start with. I've read that it works well with fruit and spices, so i'm excited to give it a try.

Its a winner!
83% max attenuation? Sandbaggers! Just did the Petite Saison kit and hit 90% attenuation and finished at 1005. My OG was a bit higher due to efficiencies and this yeast really dried the beer out nicely in the course of two weeks. Ramped temp from 65F to 72F over the course of fermentation and got some nice hints of fruit and pepper as described. Mouthfeel is very nice for such a dry beer - this is a real winner and will be my go to Saison yeast in the future.

Yay the french
After having a bit of a temperature battle with 3724 (got stuck even at 85) I tried the french saison and am never going back. It's true that 3724 gives a very unique flavor, but this one was not far off and gave such a nice silkiness. Fermented very fast and completely at 80 degrees.

Amazing Yeast
Great for Saisons, but for the adventurous, 15 lbs of honey (don't boil), fermented with this yeast (yes, it will go that high) dry hopped with coriander/bitter orange peel and carbed makes a beautiful metheglyn. Some refer to it as Beleglyn.

Fantastic saison yeast!
Have used the 3711 in petite saison, petite saison with cucumber, ginger saison, saison de Noel. Will be using 3711 this weekend in the la petite orange all grain kit as a comparison to the Belgian yeast.Ferments quickly, attenuates well, and has fantastic flavor!

beautiful strain
Heard lots of good things about 3711 and it lives up to the name. Great attenuation. The smack pack is the way to go.
