The Mad Fermentationist Saison Blend (BBXMAD1)
From: Bootleg Biology
Type: Blend • Packet: Liquid • Contains Bacteria? Yes
Species: Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus
Fine tuned over two years, this blend morphed over time to become an elegant powerhouse of classic Saison spice, stone-fruit Brett, lactic tartness and a dry but well-rounded body. The final master blend consists of Saison yeast, wild Saccharomyces, rare Brettanomyces and an opportunistic Lactobacillus culture. At temperatures as low as 68F (20C) The Mad Fermentationist Saison Blend exhibits a relatively clean primary fermentation profile and high attenuation. Traditional saison temperatures (around 80F/27C) bring out citrus and elevated phenols (pepper and clove). The Brett character shifts depending on wort composition, as maltier beers emphasize cherry and stone fruit qualities. This blend integrates beautifully with fruity and tropical hops, with the unique Brett culture keeping hop aromatics crisp and bright for an extended time. For best results use a highly fermentable wort, dry hopping during the tail of active fermentation, and carbonating naturally.

Brewing Properties of The Mad Fermentationist Saison Blend
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
