Saison Blend (WLP4007)
From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Blend • Packet: Liquid
Species: Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
STA1 gene: Yes
A blend of two unique Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains (one being STA1+) isolated from beers that embody the saison style, this blend is a balance of the many classic saison flavors and aromas. One yeast strain is a good attenuator that produces a spicy and mildly tart and tangy beer with a full mouthfeel, the other a good attenuator that produces a delightful ester profile of grapefruit and orange zest. This blend exhibits very low diastatic activity.
Brewing Properties of 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.
