This got me thinking.
I love lemon pepper when I cook (especially whenever I cook salmon).
Extend that to lemon-pepper in a saison - using lemongrass and grains of paradise.
Any thoughts? What about proportions?

I went to crank out a simple extract batch about 45 mins ago.
Got everything set up. Went to pour the steeping grains into my grain sack.
Instead, they all went onto the <expletive> driveway. In the rain.
I turned off the gas and went inside instead.
Yeah. I went inside and started to watch the Seahawks game. They played like <expletive> too.
I was in such a bad mood that my wife got up and left. (*too many loud expletives*)
A little while later, I get a phone call from her phone. She's at the LHBS asking me what I need to replace! She handed the phone to the guy and I told him what I needed, this time with a bigger grain sack and an extra lb of dme, just to bump the gravity a bit (because, hey, everyone knows more alcohol will fix things).
So, I turned the burners back on, got my water all the way heated up, added my extract, and just before hitting hot break, I <expletive> ran out of propane.
So, I ran to the store and swapped both of my propane tanks out.
But, now I have 5 gallons of IPA bubbling and the world is good again.
I should probably go put a blowoff tube on the fermenter. Something tells me I'm stupid if I don't.
Cheers! I wonder what's "Cheers" in chimpanzee?
This thread made me thing of something though. Neil Young. What is the deal? He is the most hit and miss musician in my life. Tons of great songs, and also some of the worst crap I have ever heard. Not a lot in the middle.
I don't fear 2o-25% corn. With 6 row it cuts the protein and lightens the grainy 6 row flavor. I haven't done one with 2 row yet, but 2 row has much more DP than it used to, so it should work just fine.
The Cluster hops at bittering add an old school flavor that makes me think of the sips of dad's and grandps's beers I had when a kid. That was back when the mainstream beers had some hops and flavor.
Jim, are you judging in Seattle? I'm planning on it.
