Escarpment Labs Saison Maison yeast - PREORDER
This is a non-diastatic yeast isolated from a Belgian Saison. This is quite unique in the saison yeast world, as most saison yeasts contain the STA1 glucoamylase gene, resulting in extremely dry beers. This yeast is suitable for breweries who want to produce authentic Saisons but who are put off by the risk of diastatic yeasts. Saison Maison attenuates in a manner similar to many workhorse ale strains like Cali Ale. To produce an ultra-dry beer, amyloglucosidase enzyme products are recommended as an addition mid-ferment. We also recommend fermenting hot (up to 35ºC) and dosing additional oxygen.
Optimum Temp: 22ºC + (72ºF+)
Alcohol tolerance: Medium-high
