I used Citra with this recipe, A LOT of it lol. it came out to 70 IBU and under 5% (my grain milling was horrible) but the hops/yeast strain complement each other and they both shine. Go Citra all the way!

Gravity stabilized at 1.003 and I bottled it this weekend. The rosemary and pepper definitely came through. Glad I did not boil the rosemary very long. Certainly a unique Saison. Can't wait to pop one open in a few weeks.

I brewed it as a split batch with one of each at the prescribed amounts. I like the nelson more than the citra, but they are both quite good.

Got it in the keg Monday. Rushed through the process and forgot to sanitize bottles. I had about 3/4 of the keg full and was like huh... im forgetting something. Dang it I just wont have any in bottles lol. Going to dial the pressure down tonight and let it sit at 10 psi for a while aka until I float one of my current kegs. Cant wait to pour one of these. Checked the gravity again at kegging (and tasted the sample) and it is still at 1.003 and the really "potent" hops taste that was there previously has smoothed out greatly.

Brewed on Sunday - just took a reading on gravity and down to 1.014 and counting ... Still another point or so to drop hopefully

Did you use the honey? What were your mash temps? ferm temps?
This thing really tends to dry out something fierce, Ive seen many of the other users drop down in the single digit range. Me personally, I'v had it ferment out to 0.999 and 1.003 I believe

Just brewed this last night on EBIAB rig! Substituted the sorachi ace for Willamette and the fuggles for styrian goldings. Add some lemon zest and some sweet orange peel. Cant wait to try it!

I used a pound of honey and mashed around 152 - fermentation around 74

you use the yeast I have in the recipe?

If yes, expect it to ferment to 1.002 or 1.003, the yeast is a beast!

carbonate to 3.0 volumes or so to balance the dryness.
