My daily drinker.
After Brewing this kit a second time (with the Wyeast option), I purchased a bottle of Dupont Saison and did a side by side comparison. The flavor was dead on but the DuPont with its commercial carbonation had a very inferior mouth feel. I will be ordering again (and again) as soon as the Wyeast is back in stock.

My favorite saison yeast
I'm not a huge fan of the typical Belgian-style phenolics in a saison so this is my go-to yeast. I usually get some of the promised spiciness and nice, more subtle phenolic character. Attenuates well at a wide range of temperatures, but sometimes will stall if it gets too cool. Then just move to a warmer spot in the house or apply a little heat. Does great in the summer months.

Simply the best yeast I have used.
My saison is awesome and it's mostly because of this yeast. It has more impact on the taste of a beer than any yeast I have seen. Take an IPA and use this yeast, you have Belgian IPA. It consistently takes the gravity down pretty close to 1.

Hardy Yeast
So far I really like this yeast. I took it out of the fridge and smacked it then realized I couldn't brew that day. Sat in the fridge for two weeks. Tried two other times, Let it sit out to warm up and then realized I could brew, then finally brewed yesterday. The ferment has been prolific despite my flakiness. Yeah yeast!

Excellent !
Great yeast. Started string and finished quickly. Fermented a rye saison at ambient temp during a heatwave so the house was 75-83 most of the time. Great peppery notes and a pleasant apple/pear aroma. Just bottled it today so I'm excited to taste it in a few weeks. Very happy with this yeast.

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.

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.

Still in the fermentor
I have recently uses this yeast. It worked well for me and activity started within 24 hours. I have previously used this yeast and my Saison turned out well, that is why I am using it again, my friends and I drank it all.

How long can this yeast be stored before using?

BEST ANSWER: Check the best-by date stamped on the package -- I try to use mine inside of that date, always with a starter (my usual is 1.5L), sometimes with a stepped-up starter. Outside of that date, it may still go, but a starter is more important than ever.
