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. To ensure a dry saison at cooler temperatures, finish with RVA 101 or some Brettanomyces.
