GY027 Saison #2 GigaYeast

Regular price $0.00 $14.95 Sale

GigaYeast Saison #2 GY027 is from a traditional farmhouse Saison. GY027 creates the fruity and spicy aroma traditional to the style. Warmer fermentation temperatures result in a more intense flavour. GY027 Saison #2 GigaYeast produces a tartness not found in most of our yeast and a slightly sweeter beer than GY018 Saison #1 GigaYeast.

* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato. The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20 hours). GigaYeast laboratory is still gathering data on many of our strains. Information provided here may change some in the future.
