rye saison using Yeast Bay Wallonian Farmhouse yeast.
Have you brewed with this strain before? If so, how is it?
This will be the first time using this strain.
I have heard some good things about it and intrigued by the description on the website:
"Isolated from a unique farmhouse-style ale that hails from the Walloon region of Belgium, this yeast is one
of the funkiest "clean" yeast we have in our stable. It imparts a slight earthy funk and tart character to the
beer, and is a very mild producer of some slightly spicy and mildly smokey flavor compounds."
Not so sure about the mildly smokey flavor, but the other descriptors sound nice, and I think the earthy funk and tart will play well in a saison.
Then recently I read this: http://www.alesoftheriverwards.com/2014/04/the-yeast-bay-wallonian-farmhouse-strain.html
and decided I would have to try it and see for myself.
No matter what, it will be beer.
