One of our most popular saison strains, it is great for farmhouse-style beers because it produces flavors and aromas of pear, apple and cracked pepper. This strain is a high attenuator producing a very dry and drinkable finishing beer.

**This strain has been genetically typed in our lab using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Through this genetic testing, we have determined WLP590 French Saison Ale Yeast to contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.
