Pitching Wyeast 3711 slightly warm
Due to warm water temperatures during the summer, I've had to pitch my last 2 batches of beer using Wyeast 3711 French Saison at around 75 degrees F. I normally pitch saisons at around 70 and let them come up in temp. I've also been fermenting in the mid to high 70's, because that's just how high it gets with a sleeping bag wrapped around it in the garage.

Has anyone pitched warm with this yeast? I tasted the first beer after the secondary and didn't pick up on any hot fuselly flavors, but I am just curious what other people have noticed.

I pitched mine around 70 and let it get up to 80 to finish. It went from 1.089 to 1.005 and no fusels were detected. Albeit, there's a considerable amount of spicing added, but for something around 11% abv, it's pretty easy drinking. I've heard that it just doesn't NEED to be driven as high in temp like 3724. You should be fine.

Dark saison from last Nov. with 3711: Pitched at 74, rose to 78, no perceptible fusels. As per Dan's, it did have spicing that may have covered some off-flavors, but I think hot alcohol would have still been detectable in any significant amount.

Thanks, when mine get done I'll let you know if I picked up any fusel alcohols in them.
