Eventually you will come to a point in your life where you fall asleep long before you get drunk. :o

Mmmmmmmmmm, ribs ;D.  Ron,  I'm going to have to smoke me some BBs on Sunday.  Wash 'em down with saison.

Not brewing.  Hope to transfer the 1450 IPA to the keg this weekend.  Working Saturday, so Sunday will be outdoor work.  Canning tomatoes, pickling some okra and maybe making some more chipotles.

From the Wyeast website about 3711.   
"Produces saison or farmhouse style biers that are highly aromatic, peppery, spicy and citrusy. This strain enhances the use of spices and aroma hops. It is extremely attenuative but leaves an unexpected silky and rich mouthfeel."

I have used this yeast and my results fit the description to a tee.  I enjoy this beer very much.  The silky mouthfeel can be mistaken for diacetyl.  The temp range is 65-77F and you should expect esters and phenols with this strain.  I am at a loss for what the judges would think a Belgian specialty ale should be.  I would think that door would be pretty wide open.

"Poodle Creek".... *snicker*

I snicker every time I say it!  When I moved to OR in 1975, I drove by it and said "Who the heck would ever live on a road named that?"  16 years ago, I found out...me!  Terrible name, beautiful place.  I tell people it's where you go to drown your poodle...sorry, poodle lovers!
LMFAO  Denny, that is way too funny.  Even as a dog lover (I have four, none are poodles though).

What Keith said.  I have gotten great results with 3711 by staying within  its fermentation range (66-75F)

+1  Makes a great Saison and doesn't require any fussing around with.  Ron and I got 95% AA with no problem and the beer tastes wonderful.  Great mouthfeel and a nice dry finish, fruity with a little bit of spice.  Very nice.

Well,  it has started up again.  Nice layer of krausen, not real active.  This is one of the stranger fermentations I've experienced.  Let's see what happens. :)

Amarillo is one of my favorites.  Goes well with Simcoe or Centennial as well.

Yes.  I aerated it well as well.  It was fermenting and had krausen within 12 hours and seemed to be going along fine for days, although not quite as active as the S-05 (which took 24 hours to get going).  I'm at a loss, but will keep an eye on it.  Maybe I will take some more slurry from you Ron and pitch some more in to get it to finish.  I hate to give up on it, I liked the results you got with it.
