All Grain Brewing / Re: saison mash
« on: April 22, 2010, 10:21:12 AM »
I made a Saison using 14 pounds of Belgian Pils and 1 Pound of Demerara Sugar.  Mashed at 144 for 90 minutes, added the sugar late in the boild.  Used wlp 565 Saison I.  Went from 1.072 to 1.027 in like 4 days and then it took over a month in the hot garage to get it to 1.002.  It did turn out dry and great.  I am going to brew this style again and I will use the approach described in Farm House Ales for a more fermentable wort.  I'll always use a little sugar to dry it otr.

Cheers,

Richie

It probably dries it out a bit and leaves a little residual sweetness.  What I'm wondering if you use his cry havoc yeast at ale temps will this beer still taste as it should?

I live in Milford, DE.  Here is our water report for 2009.

If anyone can make heads or tails out of it, I'd appreciate it.  Water is still something I have to get down.  I use the water out of the tap and I never treat it.  I'm sure my beer would benefit if I paid a little more attention to this facit of brewing.  Work in progress.

Cheers,

Richie

did the cherry pits come whole or ground?  I have a 5 gal barrle that I use for souring beers.  This sounds like a great project.  I wish I have a 15 gallon one.  Where did you get yours?

General Homebrew Discussion / is it too late to plant hops?

Is it too late to plant hops for this season?  Should I plant anyway in hops of next year's hops being even better?
