My saison is creeping down around the 1.026 range slow. I was planning to let this age for a year with the brett that I pitched with 3724. I've brought it to the warmest room in my house, high 80s during the day. My swamp cooler wasn't getting as hot as I thought. The bottom was much colder than the top half at 86. It might have put the yeast to sleep.

Mine is at 1.012 and still slowly bubbling. I'm on the fence about taking it off the yeast and dry hopping.

What do you think about dry hopping in the primary? I could just bag the hops and stuff them through the opening, let it sit and both ferment and pick up the hop aroma. I could keg it on this coming weekend. I'm only impatient as I have people in from Italy that want to try my homebrew.

I dry hop in primary unless I plan on washing the yeast.

Dry hopping in the primary is fine but at 1.012 it is not done yet so you want to wait until FG. Definitely do not remove this from the yeast before FG or it most likely won't finish at all for you.

Took another reading and was at 1.008. Was sick of looking at it and it tastes really good so I kegged it!

Mine's been in the keg for a week now, and it is really good. If it could have fallen another couple of points it wouldn't have made much difference. It is still bone dry.

Next time, instead of continuously dumping in hot water, just toss a cheap aquarium heater in your water bath. Much less effort and it doesn't use much energy at all (I think they're less than 100 watts). Also a lot more efficient than using a space heater to keep a spare room at 85 degrees. I have mine hooked up to a temperature controller, but they have internal thermostats so you don't have to.
