    Hi guys, I have just bottled an ale using a saison yeast strain which says it attenuates out to a FG of around 1.012 but mine finished at 1.006. Do you think that could be an infection issue? Due to illness and time constraints I had left it in primary for 28 days, so it was an extra long ferment and I didnĀ“t measure the gravity as it was fermented.

    Any thoughts?

    It's not uncommon for Saison to finish out that far, especially when given time to do so. Usually if infected it has an off taste or smell. RDWHAHB

    It's not unheard of for a saison yeast to finish out less than 1.000. Don't worry, be happy, the yeast is doing what it's supposed to do.
