Escarpment Labs Saison Maison Yeast
Escarpment Laboratories Saison Maison Yeast
This is a non-diastatic yeast isolated from a Belgian Saison. This is quite unique in the saison yeast world, as most saison yeasts contain the STA1 glucoamylase gene, resulting in extremely dry beers. This yeast is suitable for breweries who want to produce authentic Saisons but who are put off by the risk of diastatic yeasts. Saison Maison attenuates in a manner similar to many workhorse ale strains like Cali Ale. Escarpment Labs recommends fermenting hot (up to 35ºC) and dosing additional oxygen. Saison Maison has a fruity profile.
Note: Amyloglucosidase enzyme is recommended to ensure an ultra-dry beer. Alternatively, we suggest a long mash at low temperature (65ºC for 90 minutes) to produce a highly fermentable wort.
