Description
 

Classic farmhouse ale yeast. Spicy and complex aromatics including bubble gum. Very tart and dry on palate with mild fruit. Finishes crisp and mildly acidic. Benefits from elevated fermentation temperatures. This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 sg. Fermentation will eventually finish, given time and warm temperatures.

Styles: Saison

4 of 5 Difficulty and annoying yeast, but delicious. May 2, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This damn yeast. What a frustration. It produces some of the most lovely aromas and flavors of any yeast I've ever used, but it's such a pain to deal with. It stalls at around 1.030. I tried pitching and holding it warm like at about 93F. That didn't help. It just stalled sooner. Fermentation continues, so it's not technically stalled, but it's REALLY slow. Weeks and weeks and weeks slow. Here's my advice. Get a pack of Belle Saison yeast. I think it's $3.49 here. Either pitch just a teensy bit of that when you pitch the Belgian Saison, or whip up a small 500 ml starter of it and rehydrate and when that starter gets roaring, add to the fermenter when this yeast stalls. Then you get all the flavor and aromas of the 3724, but the dryness of the Belle Saison. You can get a beer hammered out in a week or two then as well instead of the month long slog.
