Another isolate from the world’s most famous saison producer, this strain is less estery and phenolic than MIP-303 and is less likely to stall out near the end of fermentation. It is recommend that MIP-304 be blended with MIP-303 to produce a more complex final product. This yeast strain has been classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus using rapid PCR analysis. This strain carries the STA1 gene, which is the signature gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and will be found in all diastaticus strains.
