Spotted at the American Home Brew Con. Seems Fermentis are releasing a dry version of the Dupont strain in about 3 weeks. Happy days!

Not yet,  Shane from thehbc said he will get it in on the next order in a couple months

Tried this yeast recently, ferments fast, was down to 1.004 within a week.
Definite Belgian flavour and aroma, more pronounced than Belle .  No citrus or peppery notes but this is the first time I used it and I did a dark saison for winter. Doesn't flock out very well on its own. Fermented at 19 and let rise to 22, would have liked it higher but shed was too cold.

Have another pack will split a batch and compare belle and 134.

Would love to do a side by side with the MJ French Saison too

"Over-carbonation. Exploding bottles. Lawsuits. Super-attenuation caused by diastaticus contamination is a hot topic in the brewing industry." Any word on diastaticus in this particular saison yeast strain? Here's a podcast for further information on the topic. French saisons and Belle Saison are noted for this contaminant. http://masterbrewerspodcast.com/068-diastaticus-part-1

I found it mostly the same except I ended up with a brilliantly clear beer without any finings. Dropped from 1.040 to 1.006 without any sugar addition. Really liked the beer it produced.
Have just kegged another, this time with 10% sugar addition and it dropped from 1.044 to 1.003

Yeah had no sugar addition in mine either

Had some wheat in mine might account for it being a bit cloudy. I think it is going to be a great yeast for saison, just need to get more brews done with it.

What did u ferment at ?

Simon_

Mine had 42% wheat :) . Sitting in the shed throughout December probably had alot to do with it.
Think I went up to 25°

I got it with an order from brewuk.  The hbc said they would get it in on their next order, that should be soon enough
