Re: Dupont Avril recipe
"I would probably mash a little warmer so it doesn't get too thin."
Too thin? I thought it was extremely thin. And extremely delicious.
I too am trying to chase a recipe for Avril. I brewed a Saison recently with a starting gravity of 1040. I hope to bottle today. The last time I checked the gravity, it was at 1003. I used Belgian Pils, American 6-Row, and Red Wheat. For hops, I went bittering, post boil steep, and dry.
The bucket sample doesn't taste like Avril, though it could be her sister in that it's light, tart, herbal, and very refreshing.
