I was reading in the past postings and wanted to discuss this issue a little more.
I found this post http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?action=post;topic=343.0;num_replies=11
and got the over 120 day notice so hence the new topic.

If you decide to try to add more  nutrients to the fermentation as the activity of the yeast appears to decline,

How much additional nutrient should you add? (5 gallon Batch)

How should you add it?  Gently stir it in?
Will you see large outgassing? What is the oxygenation risk?

Will it contribute any weird flavors?

I have done this with a Mead and got really fantastic results (thanks Hightest)
I recall that you take a gravity reading and find a half way point...then you make a supplimental nutrient addition.

I have a big Saison at 1.078 and using WY 3711 it seems to be fermenting nicely. Today makes one week since pitching.
It is declining in activity however it still is bubbling forcefully.  I would like to help this yeast finish the job and get a good dry
Saison.  I am using Wyeast yeast nutrients.

Input from someone's experiences greatly appreciated.

Today I moved it out into the summertime Garage. Temp is in the 70*f range...
Took off the unneeded blow off tube and put on the bubbler.
Paramaters for that yeast is max at 77*f. Should be good to go since it has
been in front of the swamp cooler at 60 something since I pitched the yeast.

I do dislike fuesels.

Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout.  10.085 ABV a big beer with a big flavor punch!
All the smooth full mouth feel you would expect from an oatmeal stout.
Nice stout roasty aroma.
Then a bit of the big alcohol sensations occur followed by the rum  and then a bit
of the Oak but not much.  The rum barrel lends nicely to the stout roastiness.

No. 3 in their barrel aged series and I would love another but I have no more and
Avery is a couple hundred miles away....

Recommend this If you like Stout, Rum and big beers.

Well,
I work evenings so it is a bit different for me.  I just had the brew equipment out and ready and the grain
weighed out ready to grind....I started at 0630 and put the lid on the fermenter at 11;30.  I washed
a few items the next day while it was still cool outside.  A good brew day it was.

Went so nice!  Kind of had a slow runoff but ended good.

I am putting this on the record so I can have a digital track of this beer.

I put 10# of pilsner
1# of jaggery
3 handfuls of pale choc
2 handfuls of carafoam
1 handful of wheat malt
1# of vienna

Some amarillo (1oz.)  Some Tetnang (.5 oz)
2-3 tbl spoons of large juniper berries (been in the freezer for 2 months just waiting)
some wyeast nutrient and whirlyfloc and added lots of oxygen to
the end wert that rang in at 1.078 O.G.

fermentation has launched using 3711 saison yeast even tho
it is prolly a bit dark for the style...what the heck....it is farmhouse ale.

I just had some odds and ends I needed to utilize.

sorry no hydro pix this time...I was under the gun to get er done...

Edit: Starter was 1 quart with about 3/4 " sediment in the bottom of the jar when crash cooled

I tried an all Colombus beer that was an attempt at a clone of the Avery Hog Heaven beer.
I missed the OG so I just call it an APA .... anyhow it sure is reminiscent of Grapefruit from the Hops.

-10 cool points for lack of Shemp. Shemp is the best stooge :P

Pfft. you must be drinking already. Curly trumps Shemp any day of the week.
Why do you think they made all the smileys on the internet look like Curly and not Shemp?
 ;D ;) :P

How bout your harvest?

I failed to hit my numbers...only 69 bales on 3 acres.
But it is still fun, stacking against the winter, even if your ingredients don't add up to what you wished. ;)

Cheers to the American Farmhouse.

Whats with that number?? That is how many bales I got as well....weirdness.  I got a hint about it tho....
spend some coin on fertilizer....like the guy down the way....the mower could barely cut thru it bc it was so thick.
