Product details

Danstar Belle Saison is a Belgian saison-style ale yeast, a breakthrough in the world of traditional dried yeasts. Get all the great esters and phenols that are so desirable in an authentic Belgian-style saison, with the convenience of dried yeast! Danstar technical analysis indicates that it does not experience the sluggishness common with "Dupont"-style strains.
Full attenuation is possible within 72 hours, at pitching rate of 1 g/L (2 packs for 5 gallons), wort density of 12 Plato (1.048). Fermentation temperature should be kept above 63F - it is unknown at this time what the upper limit for this yeast strain is, but free-rising from pitch temperature is encouraged. The manufacturer recommends rehydrating this yeast - instructions are on the back of the package.

First saison turned out great

I fermented a little cool 68-70 and it went from 1.058 to 1.006 in 15 days. My saison is still slightly funky with lots of Belgium flavor. It was bottled on 03-05-19 and is getting better each day. Carb feels like champagne. Love it

Try it

Great yeast, use it often. Very clean at lower temps (66-70 ambient). As a homebrewer who isn't wedded to 'brewing to style ' I don't mind throwing this into just about any wort.

Beast of a yeast

Danstar's Belle Saison will chew through wort in a few short days. It is monstrously attenuative and guaranteed to deliver the crisp, dry finish you are looking for in a Saison. At lower fermentation temperatures (sub-26°C) it can be a little character free, so if you favour a more estery/phenolic profile keep it warm. My suggestion is to under-pitch for a more fully-flavoured Saison.

I screwed up, but this yeast saved the day.

I ferment in a small chest freezer connected to an Inkbird temperature controller. Since I live in Florida, I only have a need for the cold side of the controller.

Well, I inadvertently plugged the freezer into the wrong side of the controller when fermenting my Saison. When I went to check for airlock activity the next morning, I discovered that the temp in the freezer was -2.

Certain that the yeast would be dead, I ordered another packet hoping that I could save the batch by letting it defrost and repitching.

However, by the time the new yeast arrived in the mail, I had healthy activity in the airlock, so I didn't bother repitching.

Fast forward to yesterday when the keg was fully carbonated, and my Saison is amazing.
