Big cool off today. It rained and stormed heavily last night, so we're cooling off from low 80s to mid 60s today.

I will definitely post some updates once this is ready. If it works out, then I'll definitely stash away some bottles for the next beer swap.I have a big triple brewday planned for Thursday. I'm planning on making a Saison, a Pyment and a Lambic-style sour - all using Gerwurztraminer must from a wine kit.
I look forward to hearing how the saison/must beer comes out. I'm still planning to use Muscat juice in a saison probably summer/fall ish. Just didn't order it in time to brew when I wanted to this time.
I will say that the pyment must smelled an tasted incredible going into the fermenter. I was shooting for something in the Auslese/Eiswein realm, and so far it seems like I'm right on target.
A friend of mine modified a water filter to serve as a randle. He put frozen strawberries in it and served a blonde ale through it. I was amazed how much fruit flavor was in the beer. I don't think it cost anywhere close to $300.
The randle my friend used was made from a filter like the one at this link with MFL connectors.

As tempting as biofine clear is, I did not have nearly the results I have had using gelatin properly. The biofine seemed to take longer to clear and still didn't clear nearly as well as my typical gelatin dosing. Not to mention its way more money and does not go as far.
Any thoughts? - it is underway after this morning's brewing. Sounded like it would be a good pairing, so I went with it (slurry was ready after racking prior batch to keg). This seems to be a versatile yeast, so I see why Denny likes it!
Would enough yeast be in the beer after dosing to bottle condition?
That's a LOT of mulch for a 5 gallon recipe. How much are you going to brew???a metric crap ton of red ale!
Our beer appears to still be fermenting and we are debating on whether or not to transfer to secondary now or wait longer until it completely settles.
You should wait until it is finished fermenting and the yeast has had a few days to clean up some of the less desirable by-products of fermentation before you rack out of primary.
This. There is no magic schedule. The beer is ready when it is ready. Don't rush it.
