Description 

Belle Saison is an ale yeast of Belgian origin selected for its ability to produce great Saison-style beer. This is the first dried Saison yeast for home brewers.

 Quick start and vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 5 days above 17°C (63°F).  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.

Low flocculation, high attenuation and alcohol tolerance. 11 gram packet is good for pitching 5 gallons.  Click here to download a manufacturer's specification sheet.

Hints of Saison
Great performer; 1.004 in 3 days from 1.060, but the flavor was more like a Dubel, but had hints of sour fruit. I have used this to finish the persnickety wy3724 to good effect.

Recommending Belle Saison
The warranty pack is no match for an afternoon in the mailbox at 90 degrees.  So ordering liquid yeast (Belgian Saison or otherwise) in summer months has become impracticle. I switched to the Belle Saison dry yeast with an ice pack.  I use it with the Williams Belgian LME and get great Saison style results.  Brewed several batches last fall '13 and have been aging them in garage this Winter.  They just keep getting better and better.
