Mangrove Jacks M29 French Saison

Has anyone e got any experience with this strain? Planning on using it on the weekend in a ~4.5% Saison. It recommends 26-32c. What flavours and aroma would I expect at highest and lowest recommended temperatures?

I'm interested in this one too.
I'm hoping it will give off more citrussy flavours than their M27 Belgian yeast.
I would still start this at 18-20°c for a few days before ramping the temp up to finish as I think that recommended temp is a bit misleading e.g with lager yeast with a recommended temp of 12°c, you ramp up the temp for a D rest so it isn't a flat temp profile.

Tried a saison recently fermented at 28c with this. Absolutely fantastic spicy, 'zippy' and estery profile. Seems like this is the real deal and pretty damn close to French Saison 3711

do you mean it was at 28c from start to finish? And no problems with fusels?

Saison yeasts are good like that. I'm sure I read that dupont ferments at 35c. I've done a few with saison 2 with no temp control in the heat of the summer and just left them to do their thing.

The first Saison I made was done like that too, but it had some off flavours. That was Belle Saison yeast though. Since then I've always started them at normal ale temps and increased it after a few days. Maybe I should try it again.....
