Yeah that's high. What temp did you ferment at? Used the French saison yeast?

Belgian saison yeast, and it was about 88 degrees.

Wyeast 3724? Or white labs 565? It might not be done. Mine took six weeks and I had to bring it up to 90+. I would add a pack of French saison, wy3711.

Wyeast... and it'd better be done, as it's bottled. It spent 5 weeks in the fermenter, and gravity was rocksteady for the last two.

As I think I said, it's likely an aeration issue - I'll re-brew the recipe in the spring and we'll see what happens.

Kegged five gallons of my batch today, it was down to 1.003! Very dry and tastes great.

I brewed this last night. I used citra hops, only had access to caravienne instead of caramunich and I couldn't find orange blossom honey at my Kroger so I used some local honey. I went with 3711 and it's bubbling away nicely, I used a blowoff tube after reading some of the posts. I will post a picture when it's ready.

Brewing this again today as the last lot is almost gone, going to be gutted to have a few weeks with none of this to drink.

Does this age pretty well? I have ten gallons and half is kegged, the other half in primary still. Came out above 8% and is very dry, but it could stand to mellow out a little. At 8%+ I'd think this is one that will improve with age?
