Hey all, I'm looking for bottling suggestions on this brew. My OG was 1.051, finishing at 1.007/8. ran ferm at 90 degrees. My batch size into fermenter was almost 5.25 gallons(more than 5, less than 5.5.)I will be bottling in 22oz Stone Bombers(as are almost all my batches), so I have "sturdy" bottles. Questions arising are:
1. What carb level should I aim for on this brew?
2. As an example, for 2.9 volumes, Beersmith suggests 5.26oz while brewer's friend.com suggests 6.6oz corn sugar due to the high fermentation temp.
3. I guess what I really want to know, as this is my first saison, is where should I aim for, what is safe in these bottles, and if highest temp reached during ferm can make such a big difference, why doesn't beersmith account for temp in its calculations?
Any ideas would be most helpful, especially in preventing bottle bombs!
Earlier in this thread, dcb states that he carbed to 3.5 volumes in bombers, but beersmith really does not like that level for this brew, so I am feeling lost on where to go here
