Brewers rave about this strain for making saisons! Belgian Saison II yeast from White Labs is a less fussy strain than their Saison I strain. It is fruiter, with fruit character tending to dominate the balances of esters and phenolics. It is known to ferment very quickly, often finishing primary fermentation in a matter of days. This yeast works well in warm temperatures, and brewers who know this yeast well know that it is a yeast you shouldn't be worried about pushing to 80F+. Good for saisons and other high gravity Belgians, definitely a surprising yeast.
- A great, fruity and less fussy Belgian Saison yeast strain.
- Generally produces more fruity esters than spicy phenolic compounds.
- A great yeast strain for Belgian Saisons, Belgian blondes, Belgian wits, singles, dubbels, tripels, golden strong ales, dark strong ales, Belgian table biers, and Biere de Gardes.
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!
