Voracious, complex
I tried this strain with a patersbier (OG=1.056) and a very simple malt bill to highlight the esters. Pitched without a starter into oxygenated wort and fermented at 66-68 degrees. A big blow-off tube was necessary and even then, the krausen climbed up the tube a fair bit within 48 hours. It was finished fermenting within 5 days or so. But, leave it longer to clean up the considerable sulfur this strain emits. I'd say it needs a couple of weeks before kegging or bottling, maybe 3. Complex fruity esters with some minor phenols as well.

A little too soon to tell how the Belgian Tripel came out, but made a fairly big starter for a 2.5 gal batch using this yeast 3 days in advance. Used oxygen prior to pitching and had vigorous start to fermentation within 12 hours and loads of blowoff for about 2-3 days.

My go-to Belgian Yeast
I nearly always go with 3787 now unless I'm going for a traditional style. It is best to start lower, at 68, and let it rise normally, but its much more forgiving with the off flavors when its too warm inside the house and the fermentation temps go too high for comfort. Never too much of the overly sweet or funky flavors, not much of the weird banana smells, more subtle and spicier.

Hot Yeast
Package was warm and left on my front door in 90 degree weather. Not even going to bother pitching this.

Response from Northern Brewer
I am very sorry about that. I can certainly replace that yeast for you if you like. Please let me know.

Prompt delivery of needed yeast
When we realized that the yeast we had on hand was too old, a quick order from NB got us set up and going again. Thanks NB!

Good Stuff
I use this yeast for all things Belgian. My last was a Belgian Trippel IPA. One of my best.

Great yeast. But the WLP 530 has more of the orange flavor and aroma you would find in westmalle triple.

Very Active
Used this yeast for about 5 batches and it always starts good (make sure to have lots of head-room), but dies off around 10 days. Not as good attenuation as 1388, but great spice character.

For it’s dark flavor it’s very smooth. Refreshing taste. Good balance. I’ve had I’ve had 12 people try mine and they all loved it.

Anyone ever tried this yeast in a saison? Was going to wash and reuse as I just used this for a tripel. Thoughts?

BEST ANSWER: That should be perfectly fine, and not inappropriate. On the Wyeast site, the 3787 lists some styles of beer it is good for, and one is Bier de Garde, which is very close to a Saison. This will be a fine choice to ferment a Saison, I'd say go for it! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
