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!

Al B and BPotts Collaboration Saison
Hello fellow BBB'ers....

This post bridges the gap between boards and is about a commercial beer, but I feel it has relevance here.

Just to let any Northeastern Babblers know - Al B. (Resident BBBugologist) and myself, BPotts (BBB Homebrew board contributor and brewer at Dock Street in Philly) have teamed up on a new beer, a rustic traditional Saison (hoppy, about 5.5% abv, nice and dry with no spicing). Al grew up the yeast (French Saison), and brought it down on brew day a few weeks ago. The beer is not on tap yet, nor is it named, but will be ready within a couple of weeks. Any BBB'ers who might be in the area and want to taste what a couple of lowly homebrewers can produce when we get our hands on a commecial system, come down and check it out. Should last around 2-3 weeks once tapped. I'll post an update when it's being served.

Cheers!

FG got down to about 1 plato, maybe less, or around 1.004.

As a side note, brewed the belgian golden strong spiced with black/white pepper and is fermenting still now...got up to 94 degrees! It's going to be quite a beer, incredibly fruity. Man I love that yeast!

Haha... yeah it was!

I think I've decided on the name.... "Saison DuPotts"

Re: Al B and BPotts Collaboration Saison
Sounds rad. What temp did you get the French saison yeast up to? I have only used it a few times (I have a batch going now) and I've only gotten it up to the high 70's. How does it taste when fermented at higher temps?

Re: Al B and BPotts Collaboration Saison
I fermented the Saison at 82 I believe? Maybe 84, would have to check my notes. At that temp it's pretty clean, not overly fruity at all. However, I did step the yeast up to do a BGS and let that get up to 94, and that is EXTREMELY fruity.... possibly even a bit too fruity... but still has lots of conditioning to do.

On tap, you say? I'm off to West Philly real soon now, I think.
