RVA Labs 261 Saison IRVA261
RVA Labs Saison I 261
(Dupont): 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.
Suggested fermentation temperature: 75-85º F (can be fermented above 90º F)
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (10 %)
