My recent experience with this As I’m just crash cooling a saison with this now:

It didn’t look as I would usually expect when rehydrating. I actually thought it was dead yeast but still pitched it due to my unfamiliarity with this strain. Pitched at 26 deg and it was fermenting after 10 hours. Took my brew down to 1.003 over 4 days whilst I slowly ramped to 28 degrees.

Can definitely taste and smell the saison yeast funk and the dryness, but can’t comment further just yet.

Have you used it yet?
I know this is an old thread, but I opened the M29 package and rehydrate and I found it so strange that I had to search some info. It is a strange strain: it smells odd and appears to be dead when rehydration. But I will pitch anyway. Hope it works! It is winter in Brasil now, but temps are 22-28 degrees Celsius, so I wont use a fridge. Best wishes!🙄
