Default Farmhouse Goes Crazy

Saturday, I brewed up a Farmhouse style ale using a Belgian Saison yeast. I pitched early Sunday evening and kept it relatively cool (75) for the start of fermentation. By Sunday AM the fermentation had begun but was somewhat mild. I put the bucket in the garage where the temp reached 85+ by the afternoon.

Holy cow, the thing is going nuts!! Glad I used a blow off. This yeast must really dig the higher temps.

IIRC, Saison yeast is most comfortable in the upper 80s to lower 90s. That's where it kicks into high gear and develops the signature saison flavors.
