Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Saison per Wyeast

If you have a digital temperature controller, you can switch it to heating mode and use it with a heating pad or desk lamp with a small (25w or so) light bulb in your fermentation chamber.

Be careful if you use pickling lime, it can raise pH very quickly.

I *think* you should be able to dissolve chalk much easier at a pH of 3.8.  It's just a problem in water, and even at mash pH.  Some historical Belgian ale producers used to add eggshells to wort that was too sour, and that's basically chalk.

Perhaps if you sparge hotter you would be able to carry more unconverted starches over to the kettle?  There's always the risk for tannin extraction, but keeping the proper pH seems to be the biggest key to avoiding problems.

Saison was at the height of fermentation last night and hit 88. 



 :o

Don't worry, it's 565  ;D.  I split the batch with the new Belle dry saison yeast, so we'll see how that one tastes when fermented like wine.

I think CMC malts would be a good sub for any American malt.

What malt is it?  For a domestic malt, I prefer Canada Malting Company to Briess.

Did a summer saison with spelt on Sunday.  After I get back from vacation, I'll be making more lambic wort.  I picked up about 20 pounds total of raw grain at the health food store for these batches.
