Exactly what Matt said.  Why?!?!

I really want to give TYB's Saison/Brett blend a go for my next saison.

This is pretty clearly going to be the Brasserie Thierez (WY3711) strain.

With only 80% attenuation? 3711, just like Belle, is a S.cerevisiae var. diastaticus, that eats more than Brett. It can produce external enzymes (glucoamylase) that chop the dextrins and maybe even starches albeit very slow.

Then again, marketing has the last word ...
