Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

3725 Biere De garde
I recently used the 3725 Biere De Garde yeast on a saison. When I went to rack it to the secondary the gravity was at 1.002, which isn't bad for a saison but still pretty quick.

Didn't taste infected.

So I'm wondering for those of you that have used it, what was your attenuation?

BTW grain was:

11lbs belg. pils, 2lbs wheat malt, 2lbs munich.

Mashed at 148F.

Re: 3725 Biere De garde
OG 1.052

FG 1.006

11# Vienna

1# Honey Malt

3 hour mash at 150 degrees; fermented at 182 (ambient - estimate actual ferm temp 5 to 8 degrees higher.)

Despite the high ferm temps, there's not much interesting going on - rather bland.

Mine went from 1.064 to 1.008, which is just under 87% attenuation. Right at 7.4 percent. For the record, it was a Biere de Mars.

Re: 3725 Biere De garde
Greetings all...I haven't posted to this board before, but thought I'd contribute a data point. I used 3725 for a blonde bier de garde, which went from 1.071 to 1.004 in a few weeks. I've never had a final gravity that low in 15 years of brewing. Taste is currently malty yet (unsurprisingly) very dry, with a hint of apricot in the nose. The ethanol taste is rather strong; I'm hoping this might condition out with time. In hindsight, had I known how attenuative this yeast would be, I'd have changed the recipe formulation - I included 1 lb corn and 1.2 lb sugar to lighten the body, which was apparently not required...
