WY3724 How long does this take?

How much yeast did you pitch? Do you make a starter? I believe that under pitching can lead to slow an/or stuck fermentations.

Please see First post;)

Proper starter of healthy fresh yeast was pitched and well aerated wort as well as temperature control of fermentation and still going...

Thanks Amanda!
You beat me to it, I was planning on emailing them later today as well. They are great over there, I have spoken with Jess before and their customer service is terrific!

Both Wyeast and White Labs have the best customer service people. We are lucky to have them!

An update on my Belgian Saison experiences...

I had mentioned that I was going to do WY3724 at 90* and see what happened, but I end up getting a fresh dump of WLP565 from a friend to rebrew the Nelson Sauvin Saison. First impressions... I'm confused, I thought these were the same yeasts??

WLP565 finished to 1.006 in 8 days from 1.048. Eight days?? I started at 72 and then took it to 80 after 2 days, then after 2 more days, set it at 85 and walked away. I was just checking progress at 8 days and couldn't believe it was finished.

Are these not the same yeasts? I've always been told they were both from Dupont. But tasting this sample, it seems that WLP565 is more spicy than WY3724, which I perceive as fruitier.

Amanda, in correspondence with Drew Beechum (who is very knowledgeable on Saisons) he shared with me that Wyeast 3724 and WLP565 are not identical yeast strains. It has been reported that they are two different strains that are used in the brewing of Saison Dupont. Below is what Drew stated:

“The story about 565/3724 being two parts of a whole has been told to me by several people with letters after their names that are close to the matter.”

Cheers!
