Doubleheader tomorrow.  Scottish 80/- and an old school APA with centennial bitter and cascade late. Time to get my kegs ready for summer. Between projects and a big quad with cherries taking up my fermentation chamber, ive fallen behind. I have 5 empty kegs :(

Just finished up the first farmhouse ale of the summer. easiest thing to brew here this time of year. 2 row, munich, and rye malt. cascade, sterling, and smaragd. American farmhouse blend, belgian ale blend, and belgian saison yeast. brewing on the threes I guess.

I enjoyed a Logsdon Farmhouse saizon and flanders with cherries a couple days back. Two styles I'll have to learn now. How long does it take to do a saizon that uses brett at the end ?

You could ferment it normal, use some flaked oats for body, mash high to add brett munchies, and bottle with brett. This way you can enjoy the journey one bottle at a time. I've been planning one like this for a long while.

Left out "mash high". That is important

I guess I could start by figuring out how to produce a solid saizon first LOL.

My favorite was that Cerasus (Flanders Red secondaried on 2lbs of cherries per gallon) and I think he finishes it on brett and lacto. That must take a year huh?

I've made a lot of different saisons, so I'll give you my base grist : 75% Pils, 20% Vienna, 5% Wheat. Mashed low, like 147F for 90 minutes.  Saison yeast of your choice. It's such a wide open style it's fun to experiment with though - I use Munich (in place of Vienna) sometimes, a little rye sometimes. I think the main thing is to mash low and long for super good attenuation and obviously use a saison yeast. It's a fun style to brew and an easy one (to me).


This weekend - racked my wife's wheat beer into secondary on peach and mango purees for her upcoming 'chick party'.  And I'm gonna brew a hefeweizen tomorrow to take to my buddy's pool party next month. 3068 gone cool - I like it fermented at 64F to tame the banana bomb effect. I find a mix of clove/spice and banana more interesting.

Yesterday I brewed 10 gallons of Skotrat's Traquir House Ale recipe.  This morning I have 3-4 inches of krausen in each of my two glass carboys.  Fresh microbrewery Scottish ale yeast slurry is a wonderful thing.

Brewed an IPA yesterday.  Selected the wrong equipment profile in Beersmith.  As a result, I used half a gallon less water than intended.  I will consider this a happy accident that will make my beer more hoppy, more malty and more boozy.

Last brew til October. 10 gallons that was 65/25/5/5=pils/triticale/flaked wheat/coriander honey. Split into two fermenter, one got Oberon's yeast, other got wyeast 3726 farmhouse ale that I cultured from Off Color brewing's Apex Predator. Also threw St. fuellian's saison dregs in, and Boulevard saison Brett dregs. Hoping to get a nice saison blend going for the fall.

St. Feuillien is a yeast worth culturing.  As far as I can tell, it isn't sold to home brewers and is quite different from the commercially available homebrew saison yeasts.  Makes your beer taste suspiciously like Hill Farmstead's minus the hype. ;)
