RVA 261 Saison I (Dupont)

All that is wonderful about Wallonia. This strain produces the fruity, bubblegum esters with all the spice and pepper that makes Saison so appealing. Our advice: against all brewing orthodoxy, ferment this strain hot! Mid to upper 80¡F coupled with good oxygenation, and yeast nutrient will help prevent this yeast from stalling out. Patience will be rewarded with this strain, it may take a few weeks after a vigorous fermentation to finish out, but it is worth the wait. For a dry saison, finish with RVA101 or some Brettanomyces.
