A classic saison strain, Saison Maison can be used to make solid representations of saisons, as well as Belgian strong ales and Belgian blond ales! This strain is STA1-negative, lacking this diastatic enzyme, so will not ferment quite to the dryness of other STA1-positive strains, such as Spooky Saison. In order to facilitate a drier finished beer (if that is the goal), you may consider lower mash temperatures or the use of amylase enzyme. This yeast has some phenolic, peppery notes, as well as flavors and aromas of orchard fruits that give beers that classic flavor profile! With a wide temperature range, Saison Maison is a great house strain, just like it's name implies!
ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
