Bottled this today after 20 days in primary (1st week low 60's, last 2 at room temp). Sample tasted great! Good funk in there from the 3711, which was surprising. Harvested some Brett dregs recently to throw in the next batch with 3711, but dont think I'll need much.

I have 8 oz of Aramis hops. It's French and sounds good. Because I have so much of it I thought I would make this recipe with only Aramis.

What do y'all think?


Aramis is the product of a 2002 cross between the French variety Strisselspalt and the English variety WGV (Whitbread Golding Variety).
Aramis has very fine aromas, which it has inherited from the Strisselspalt line. It has sweet, spicy notes, with hints of citrus and herbs.
Its aroma and alpha acid content allow it to be used at all stages of hopping.

sounds like a good excuse to brew another saison! Thanks for the info - never heard of it before! I was thinking of wanting to use the Belle Saison - this might be good with that experiment!

I brewed this last night as a partial boil. Mostly all grain, but threw in 1lb of DME with 10 minutes left in the boil to make up for some missing gravity. It's very dark in the fermenter, wasn't expecting that. I also used Danstar Belle Saison yeast as my LHBS didn't have 3711.

awesome - would enjoy hearing your experience with this yeast and how it compares to 3711

I promised myself I'd step away from the saison but every time I try, another idea comes from HBT. I'm wondering how the Belle might work with a "Copper" Saison with emphasis on dark fruits or combining it with 3724

EDIT: The more I think of it - the more I like the idea of toying with Belle and using some Special B with hint of Walnut chips or ome wood-infused flavors in a session Grisette (4% ABV) with a real smooth wood or nutty/hops/slight malt character

I bottled this last night. Does anyone have a preferred age for this beer?

I'm at 3 weeks currently and still feel it needs probably 1 or 2 more

I've tasted green saison bottles at 1 week, 2 weeks, and 3-3.5 seems to be an odd in-between time, for me anyways. My pumpkin saison was 3 weeks just this Sunday - it tastes great, but, I think a nice round month and it will be that much better. EDIT: a little weird testing the pumpkin in April, but, will be refining it for the real Pumpkin Saison brew come July. I am loving my pipeline right now

I was so impatient my first couple of brews, but, now that I have my supply going, I'm finding it much easier to wait. I always make a half a gallon to a gallon extra just for tasting and making notes at different intervals. My next one, a BDS with 1762 and 3787 will be a huge test on my new found "patience" - although, I think some of the warmer/hot belgian characters will make it a little easier at first

Cheers great brew!!! Would highly recommend this to anyone. The pepper notes are fantastic. I'm thinking of brewing this again in 2 weeks only difference would be 10 gallon.
