    So I need to order a few bits pieces. New biab bag and some other small stuff.

    Was thinking of doing a saison next as it’s been 6 months since my last one and one of the online stores I use stocks imperial yeast. They just got a delivery of the rustic saison yeast.

    So thinking of grabbing one. Haven’t heard much about them. Anyone used the rustic or another one ?

    Hi Mongey,

    What temp did you ferment at, ambient or heated? MoreBeer's website says 20-27. Did it come out estery or phenolic? I'm not a fan of phenolics, I like esters though.

    MoreBeer also says it is equivalent to Wy3726. I have notes from a couple of years ago when I was researching, which put Wy3726 at the top of the list of favourite saison yeasts.

    I went for the high end , like I do with all Saisons so say 27.

    flavour wise it was pretty neutral and tart. More estery for sure. I had a shit work day yesterday and had pounded a few beers. So my flavor detection may be a little off.

    That doesn't sound too bad. People on other forums which I checked, were saying it was best consumed fresh. Looks like a good yeast to use if one is in a hurry.
