WY 3724 dupont repitch!
My last saison I just brewed used this strain (my personal fav) and it took 5 weeks to get down to 1.008 from a 1.055. I reused about 1.5 cups of this slurry with my dark saison and in 3 weeks the beer attenuated from a 1.068 down to a 1.012! The repitch was a faster ferment. did add some yeast nutrient to the boil in the dark saison so that also could have helped. Just kegged the dark one today and added a packet of Brett B. for some funky barnyard. I bet that Brett will bring this one down to 1.006-1.008 in a months. I was surprised to see how quickly this beer attenuated with the repitch as I used quite a bit of unfermentables in it like Caramunich 60, special B, melanoiden, pale choc. I truly love the 3724! :)

Re: WY 3724 dupont repitch!
I need to try 3724 again. I got burned last time I used it on the first pitch, it was only down to 1.020 after 6 weeks! I had planned to harvest the slurry and see how it performed on the 2nd pitch, but then we moved houses and I had to abandon that idea.

Luckily I got a little pitch of krausening DeRanke yeast from Upright for the first saison. I haven't moved it from the secondary yet but I'm sure it is well attenuated now!

I would also like to try blending 3724 with faster saison strain. I think that would provide the best performance for commercial applications.

Sean,

What did you think of the DeRanke? I started a saison with it but it came out with very little in the way of esters. What temp did you ferment at with it?

Re: WY 3724 dupont repitch!
My buddy and I just placed an order for Al's saison blend and will be using that one soon. I believe it has 3 strains in it; 3711, 3724, and the Fantome yeast. I am assuming that with 3711 on board there will be no more waiting 5 wks for a killer saison...

Re: WY 3724 dupont repitch!
My experience with 3724 was my first acetaldeheyde exoerience it did finally go away. I much prefered the Wyeast 3726 Farmhouse Ale strain but I have not seen offerings of that for quite some time now. Sigh...3711 seems to be a good strain as well and I have a Saison in secondary brewed with Utah Juniper berries from Topaz Mountain outside of Delta UT. Interesting is that the beer is the color of the Sherry Topaz we were mining....so I figure it named itself Topaz Saison.

http://www.fellins.com/blog link has a pic that reflects the color I am referring to.

Re: WY 3724 dupont repitch!
I too miss 3726. A couple weeks ago I tried to culture some from a bottle of Saison D'Epeautre - Brasserie de Blaugies, but the built-up starter was very neutral and had very little esters. I don't know if a different strain was used in the bottle, or if I had an old bottle with very little active yeast. So I bought some 3711 and used that instead.
