Default GF Saison

Hey Gang,

Bottled my GF Saison today. Tastes fantastic already. Can't wait for it to carbonate and condition in the bottle.

Starting gravity = 1.076
Final gravity = 1.024

This puppy fermented for 6 full weeks before gravity readings stabilized and it was ready to bottle. I also transferred it to another carboy twice to clarify (once at 2 weeks into fermentation, and again at 4 weeks).

Used sorghum syrup as the main fermentable. A little sweet orange peel and coriander for seasoning. Czech Saaz hops for bittering, Amarillo for aroma.

What does everyone else have in the works right now?

Cheers,
Pete

I just bottled an IPA yesterday and it tasted pretty damn good. Looking forward to this!

On Friday I brewed a Wit beer for fun. Used some bitter and sweet orange peel and some coriander. should be interesting.

Looking to do some fall/winter type beers next.

On Wednesday night I am going to bottle a GF Pilsner (I used dkershner's recipe). This beer looks and smells awesome so far. Very excited to taste the finished product!

I've got a gf porter on tap right now. It's still good, but it is past it's prime. If my hops are ready to be picked this weekend, I'm going to do a regular and a gf IPA. And I've still got about 10lbs of malted buckwheat that will be used to make a hefe.

Just brewed a Gluten-Free Agave Wit.

Recipe:
3lbs Sorghum Extract
2.75 lbs Brown Rice Extract
1 lbs Agave Nectar
2 lbs Raw Millet Grain*
0.75 oz Cascade (30 min)
2 oz Grapefruit Peel (15 min)
0.5 oz Coriander (15 min)
0.75 oz Cascade (5 min)

WLPP400 Yeast - White Labs Belgian Wit
5 tsp Yeast Nutrient

SRM: 4
IBU: 13
OG: 1.052
Est. FG: 1.012
Cal/pint: 231

Even the wort tastes amazing on this one, so I'm glad that Wit's don't take long to finish. Just brewed it last night and I'm already wanting to drink it.

*Mash in 1 gal at 155F, rest 30 min, remove liquid, set aside, boil 0.5 gal and put grain bag in boiling water, cut heat and rest 30 min, combine liquids and reduce to 122F for protein rest, rest 30 min, bring up with direct heat to 155F add amylase and wait for freakin' ever (about 2 hours, but should have waited a day), then start the rest of brewing. Efficiency was extremely low due to being raw, got about 1.018/lbs of grain per gallon out of it. Flavor was weak, but spent grain tasted spent, and seemed to contribute some protein to the wort. And hasn't had large amounts of sediment.

PS
Do you have any idea how long it takes for a wort chiller to get the wort down to 70F when your tap water is 82F? Stupid Texas.

What yeast did you use?

I made a blonde with almost no sorghum...jury is still out on that one. I will make Jaimi drink some soon.

This beer is awesome!!!!! I gave it two weeks to bottle condition, and it has carbed up nicely. This is the first GF beer that my wife has drunk in its entirety....and that says a lot!

This beer is clear, crisp, and delcious. No sorghum twang, and the hops are mellow. This is the perfect session beer. Thanks for posting the recipe. I will brew this again.
