Details

Belle Saison is an ale yeast of Belgian origin selected for its ability to produce great Saison-style beer. The propagation and drying processes have been specifically designed to deliver high quality beer yeast that can be used simply and reliably to help produce ales of the finest quality. No colours, preservatives or other unnatural substances have been used in its preparation. Recommended pitch rates 1g/L. 11g pack. Microbiological Properties: • Classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae • Top-fermenting yeast • Typical analysis of active dry strain: • Solids 93%-95% • Living yeast cells ≥5 x 109 per gram of dry yeast • Wild yeast <1 per 106 yeast cells* (Lysine method) • Bacteria <1 per 106 yeast cells* • Finished product is released to market only after passing a rigorous series of tests *According to ASBC and EBC methods of analysis Brewing Properties: • Quick start and vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 5 days above 17°C (63°F). High attenuation and high alcohol tolerance. • Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation depend on inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of wort. • Low flocculation rate; settling can be promoted by cooling and by using fining agents and isinglass. • Saison beers are quite unique to brew. During fermentation, cooling is not normally used, allowing temperature of fermentation to increase. • Aroma is fruity, spicy and peppery due to ester and phenol production, and does not display undesirable odours when properly handled.

    Goes off like a rocket!
    Review by Martynon 17/02/2017
    I used this to brew a 'Belgian IPA' with a starting OG of 1075, was being lazy and pitched straight into the wort rather than hydrating as the packet says. Less than 8 hours later there was a massive Krausen which was bubbling out of the airlock! It reached 1008 after 4 days and then took a few more to drop down to 1004. Not quite as complex in flavour as some of the liquid saison yeast strains but I'd use it again happily due to it being so efficient and not stalling like some of the other saison strains have a rep to do.

    Did its job
    Review by travison 24/01/2016
    I used this for a Saison recipie and it fermented wel lat 20 degrees for 2 weeks. The beer has come out strong and has a really lovely, complex taste. Really please with this as I had a load of lumps from the malt and it chewed its way through them all.

    Great Yeast
    Review by TheGarvon 29/04/2015
    This is probably my favourite dried yeast. It attenuates really well very consistently. I find I get the best results from pitching at low temperatures (16-17C), without rehydrating, keeping it below 20C until fermentation is properly under way, then letting it go, perhaps heating it slightly (I move the fermenter next to a radiator) for the final few gravity points. Mashing for attenuation, this consistently finishes between 1.000-1.004, depending on the beer, with lots of saison character and no unwanted esters. It takes its time, and tends to exhibit longer lag times than, say, S-04 or US-05, but it always gets there and produces great beers.

    Slow But Steady
    Review by Steve Jon 22/05/2014
    I had read reviews on American Forums but didn't always quite trust them.
    Pitched at 25c after rehydrating in a wort of 1062.
    Initially the yeast kicked of very quickly and within a few hours there was a thick head on my fermenter (much quicker than say nottingham).

    By the end of the next day the brew was down to 1040. However over the next couple of days things slowed down until day 6 it was only at 1014. I racked of to my secondary and over the next 4 - 5 days it crept down to 1002 at which point it was bottled.

    I too would use this again. I think its definately one to leave in the bottle for a while. My intial thoughts were more Afligem Blonde than Leffe but the final out come will of course depend on your recipe. The beer does end up very dry.

    Great Saison Yeast
    Review by Timon 27/07/2013
    I bought this after reading lots of reports of the most popular liquid saison yeast stalling and as it was my first saison I wanted everything to be as smooth as possible.

    Pitched warm (30c) and let the fermentation take its own path without trying to control temps during this mini heatwave we are having.

    It took off like a rocket and my hydrometer sample after 5 days says that it has reached 1.004 (approx 85% attenuation) the sample has a lovely clove and lemon rind hit with a dry peppery finish. Smells like many belgian strains with my other half commenting that it reminded her a bit of Leffe Blonde.
    This is definitely one to try again to compare how a controlled fermentation would alter the flavours, but so far i'm very happy.
