It's the Rainy Saison here!!!
Well, I brewed to beat the rain today (here in North Alabama)... So I guess I'll have to call this one "The Rainy Saison" to appease the brew gods for holding off till I finished!!!
I did a Mini-Mash (30 min. @ 152 F then raise temp to 170 F over 20 minutes)
1 lb Weyermanns Munich
.25 lb Dingemans Special B
7 lbs Munton's Extra Light DME
1 lb Munton's Wheat DME
1 lb Blonde Candi Sugar (Thanks Brian!!!)
1.25 oz East Kent Golding (6.2 AAU) for 60 minutes
.25 oz each of EKG, Styrian (4.9) and Saaz (3.6) 20 minutes
.50 oz each of EKG, Styrian and Saaz 1 minute
IBUs ~= 40
SRM somewhere around 10ish+
Pitched 1 L starter of WLP565 Saison I and a pouch of WY4335 Lactobacillus delbrueckii @ 80 F...
And now we wait and see
Keep your fingers crossed for me as this is my first Saison and one of my last extract batches... parts for the mash tun are here and all I have to do is get the top cut out of my keg!!!
So who brewed what for Memorial Day???
