Omega Yeast Belgian Saison I

$8.99

SKU# OYL027

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
Easily considered to be "the" Belgian Saison yeast, this strain is the most widely used farmhouse ale yeast. A traditional yeast that is spicy with complex aromatics, including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. It will yield a crisp, mildly acidic finish that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Easily considered to be "the" Belgian Saison yeast, this strain is the most widely used farmhouse ale yeast. A traditional yeast that is spicy with complex aromatics, including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. It will yield a crisp, mildly acidic finish that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures. This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 S.G., especially if the temperature has dropped. Fermentation will finish, given time and warm temperatures. Warm fermentation temperatures, at least 90°F (32°C), or the use of a secondary Belgian strain can accelerate attenuation. It is recommended to confirm your FInal Gravity has been reached before bottling due to the slow attenuation.

They're right
I'm in the middle of the ferment... and yes, it stopped right around 1.032 or so. I've got the blanket around it set for 80 degrees (which is as high as it really goes) and shortly I'll transfer it to a secondary and add another yeast to get it to finish it's attenuation. But I can say it took off like crazy... I actually had trouble keeping the airlock in place, the pressure in the carboy was so high! I'm looking forward to see how it comes out!
