SKU# Y3711

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

Wyeast 3711 French Saison yeast starter is a strain that enhances the use of spices and is extremely attenuative yet leaves an unexpected silky and rich mouthfeel in a very dry finished beer.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
