French Saison Ale Yeast from Mangrove Jack

French Saison Ale (M29)

From: Mangrove Jack
Type: Yeast  •  Packet: Dry
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

French Saison yeast is an exceptional, highly attenuative top-fermenting ale yeast, creating distinctive beers with spicy, fruity and peppery notes. Ideal for fermentation of farmhouse style beer. This is a highly characterful yeast strain that will dominate all but the highest hopping rates and complex malt bills. Beers fermented with this yeast will tend to be dry in finish, often with a slight drying acidity and peppery notes, aiding drinkability at higher alcohol levels. Higher alcohol beers may have an increased ester production and warming alcohol notes.

Brewing Properties of French Saison Ale

The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.

Alcohol Tolerance
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
14%
Attenuation
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
85-90%
Flocculation
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
Medium
Optimal Temperature
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.
79-90° F
(26-32° C)
