GY018 : SAISON #1
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 81% – 83%
Attenuation High Gravity* 49% – 53% (6.2% – 6.8% ABV)
Temperature Range† 64˚F – 80˚F
Description: Traditional Saison yeast from a French craft brewery. Produces fragrant beer with pepper and fruit notes. Warmer fermentations create more intense flavors. Perfect for accentuating citrus and fruit flavors. High attenuation rates make a dryer beer than Saison #2.
Representative Styles: Saison, Farmhouse Ale, Belgian Ale, Biere De Garde
* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
