Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Re: WY Bier de Garde yeast
Just brewed my first batch with the yeast Saturday with a couple of friends. We went with a dark saison inspired by Lost Abbey's 10 Commandments. 1.072 (Pils, Carafa Special II, CaraWheat, Special B), 26 IBUs (First Wort Amarillo), blackened raisins, fresh rosemary, and orange zest.

We pitched around 70 degrees, I let it go at room temp (~75) for the first 48 hours, then early today started giving it some heat with a heating pad.

Mike -

I have a sorta similar brew going with WY3711, less the wheat, plus Melanoidin and Caravienne. Just curious - how much rosemary did you use?

Re: WY Bier de Garde yeast
We used an ~8” sprig worth for 11 gallons. We took the leaves off and added them at flameout. I think rosemary is pretty resinous and could easily overwhelm a beer, but we can always add a bit more to the fermenter if needed.

IIRC Tomme said they use a 1 qrt baggie of fresh rosemary (from one of the brewer’s mothers) in their production batches.
