My Little Helper

When my Belgian Saison yeast stalls, it’s time to call for some superhero assistance:

This stuff is amazing.  My Saison stalled, as expected – Wyeast 3724 has that reputation.  When that happens, I make a 1 quart starter of this stuff, let it stir overnight to get going and to get thoroughly oxygenated, then pitch it.  My Saison is bubbling away now, on its way to a final gravity less than 1.010.  It’s very neutral yeast, this WLP 090, and apparently tough enough to live in about anything.  It’s my little helper for finishing big beers, highly recommended.
