WLP585 Belgian Saison III Yeast

Seasonal Availability: Jul - Aug

Produces beer with a high fruit ester characteristic, as well as some slight tartness. Finishes slightly malty, which balances out the esters. Also produces low levels of clovey phenolics. Great yeast choice for a summer Saison that is light and easy-drinking.

Saison III

By: JP | Date: Mar., 3rd 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Saison

This is one of my favorite strains to use and I stock pile when it is released. I typically blend it with the Brett Trois to achevie a beautiful grapefruit and mango brightness to my saison, without adding adjucts such as peels or grains of paradise. I really wish this was released year round or changed to Januarary to have may saison ready for the summer. Looking forward to scaling this guy up to a 90bbl Foeder.

Saison III yeast

Nice yeast but only use if you want a lambic syle beer. The description of "slightly tart" is way off. Try "pronounced tartness". I used this on a high-gravity Wit and created something practially undrinkable.

Saison iii is great

Love this yeast! Description is spot on. However, I'm pretty sure this has some brett or bacteria in it. I used this over and over and propagated a few times and I now have a pellicle on my starter! This will continue to develop in the bottle for months and months. If you're looking for more peppery flavors and aromas from your Saison go with I or II, otherwise for a fruity, tart, very interesting flowery aromas try this guy out.
