BELGIAN SAISON I (OYL-027)
From: Omega Yeast
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Well regarded as a farmhouse ale strain despite fickle fermentation behavior. It has fruity complexity, good phenolics and a tart and dry finish. It's better at warm fermentation temperatures, but is still well known to stall around 1.030. Try using an additional strain to aid attenuation, or the more reliable Saisonstein's Monster (OYL-500), Belgian Saison II (OYL-042) or French Saison (OYL-026).
Brewing Properties of BELGIAN SAISON I
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.
