WY3711 and floculation
Howdy,

First batch using 3711 and at 10 days primary 1.052-1.006.

A lot of yeast still in suspension. Is this a low floculator, like wp570 low :-0, or will it just drop eventually.

Re: WY3711 and floculation
What temp are you fermenting at? I've never had 3711 finish above 1.002 or so which makes me think it isn't done, but 10 days seems like a long time for a voracious yeast strain like that.

Does not floc well. The only way to get the yeast to drop is to either crash cool it or store it in a secondary vessel at room temp for several weeks.

Yes, low floc - typical for saison yeasts that have high attenuation characteristics, although factors influencing floc is poorly understood.

I actually prefer saisons cloudy with extra yeast in suspension.

Thanks for the replies. I suspected as much.

I'm not concerned with hitting low final FG or cloudy appearence, just don't want yeast bite.

Been in primary for 2wks down to 1.005 - I'm not worried about bottle bombs. A lot of yeast still in suspention. I don.t mind cloudy but don't want yeasty bite. how long did you go before bottling/keg with this yeast?

Re: WY3711 and floculation
If you have let this saison go for 2 wks in primary then you are fine to bottle. This strain is a voracious eater and will do its job VERY quickly and efficiently. At 1.005 you can bottle with no worries. If you are worried about yeast bite, crash cool (if possible) for 40 hrs or so before bottling.
