I also brewed a Saison today.  My brother sent me Double Eagle Rustic Pale and Aromunich Malts in the same proportion that Yards used in a recent brew.  I hopped it with Bravo and Eroica and pitched Belle Saison.  My imagination thinks it will be awesome.  I hope it matches reality.

Pressure ferment at 12psi 56F

Cheers!

I%u2019m home today waiting for Ian, which, once again missed us and is coming ashore to the south.  I just kegged the Saison I brewed 10 days ago with malt that my brother sent from Philly.  The same combination of Rustic Pale and Aromunich malts that Yards Brewing used in a recent beer.  I hopped it with Bravo and Eroica.

Plan to brew a cream ale this weekend depending on the weather. Lots of rain forecast for us. I need to closely monitor the weather as I can't lose power during brewing. If weather forecast is for other than rain, maybe a nice day to visit a local pub instead of brewing.

Sounds great!!!

thanks, but truly the high brown malt percentage has me worried, also worried about the FG either being very low or very high. if it works, i will happily add a note to the growing pile of anecdotes that the maltster recommended max percentages of certain malts are simply their personal and likely out of date opinions. (brown malt on crisp's webpage says "up to 5%" lol)
