A Guide to Saisons and Saison Yeasts

Is there any style nearly as driven by yeast as the Saison? I'd argue no, so it's important to know your options! Here's my run down of Saison strains that I've tried or seen reported (and am tracking to make sure I try)

 

TL;DR: Yeast is Important, Saisons need yeast, Drew has a way to ferment them - Just take me to the yeast (Also, if you have any notes, you'd like to add - just leave a comment below or hit Drew up at drew@maltosefalcons.com)

Izzy-Claus

This was "Brew with a Falcon - Azusa" on March 22 2015 at my place. The recipe is my interpretation of Samichlaus Classic Bier and the Falconclaws. Must use the Zurich yeast (available through white labs every fall) to ferment this big of a beer. It is a lager that needs time, lots of yeast, cool fermentation and patience is a must!
