I think that'll be plenty. Best use alot of late hops. From 15-0 I did a nice buttering at 60 then another at 30 then did 15-10-5-0 in hot whirlpool. Then 2 dry hops as well kettle hops were 120 IBU. Mines more red IIPA.

Had my racist Frenchman last night. Holy crap it's good

I bottled my second attempt at an Epic clone the other day ... even tasted about right! I'm now thinking that I need to do another brew, but what to do? What is a Red IIPA, and what type of beer is the Racist Frenchman?

Most definitely, would be good to try some of those beers you keep talking about. I'll even throw in one of my last Gunslingers graf's, lol. I think the plan will be to do the swap, when your IIPA is done and we can swap accordingly, along with maybe another brew?

Red IIPa, is what I've kinda called my Double IPa, its similar to the like of Hop Zombie, Tuataras Double Trouble, and 8 wireds Hopwired and Superconducter. It's just a bit darker than those ones.
the other place is the recipe advice thread, and what are you brewing on realbeer, there heap of recipes on those threads, which have been created, by the more experienced guys, who know how flavours meld together etc.

My Racist Frenchman, I have renamed "Code Brown" But its a Saison/Belgian Brown, using 3711 yeast. and some simple darker malts to create a nice brown beers, witha red hue to it. Recipe is Partial Mash and is on my blog. If you did end up doing it, I'd be interested to try the difference.
If your looking for recipes theres heaps on here, or try Can you brew it for plenty of recipes, they even have 8wired iStout

ooooh.... brown saison sounds good.

I need to brew some more saison. Ran out recently. There's a few things i want to try with saisons.

One, I want to try and do something along the lines of xx bitter by De ranke.

I dont want to clone it, just get something along those lines. Will be doing a saison thats hopped like an apa/ipa. I am still undecided on hops, but keen to see how this kinda hopping schedule will work out using noble hops.

secondly, I want to do a standard saison, then do a secondary fermentation with brett (or maybe at bottling time). I acquired some brett (accidentally) in some bottles of a Tripel I brewed a while ago. There may be some other stuff in there... who knows. Definite horse blanket/barnyard going on there. I've been looking for an excuse to see what i can do with it. Might do a split batch and dose half and leave the rest. See how different they turn out.

I also want to do a really dark saison. Something along the lines of THIS

Yeah The brown saison is good used 3711 too which kinda makes it I think. I took inspiration from our friend the mad fermentationist And used elements of his light and dark saisons

I've got a belgian IPA coming up later in the year so I'm planning on splitting some wort off with 3711. Your plan sounds good :-)

I like 3711, but think I prefer the Dupont strain (Belgian Saison 3724). People say its a pain in the ass, but I've never had it finish higher than 1.005.

I also like WLP566

At some point I'd like to give Wyeast 3725 and Wyeast 3726 a go too.

Ok! I have my stuff ready for a belgian sour. I am still trying to decide exactly what I want to brew, but I think its going to be an oud bruin. The plan is to start fermentation with US-05, then 2 days later, I'll pitch the bugs. I will be using White LAbs WLP665.

"Blended culture used to produce the classic beer styles of the West Flanders region of Belgium . A proprietary blend of Saccharomyces yeasts, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus, this culture creates a more complex, dark stone fruit characteristic than WLP 655 Belgian Sour Mix."

Sounds good to me. Who the hell knows how this will turn out. Guess we'll see in a year!
