Great to hear. Sampled one of mine, a bit fizzy but delicious. I think it will be great in about 2 weeks.

Hey all, we did a "sister" recipe to this one that turned out awesome as well. Don't know if it would win BoS or anything but if anyone is interested...

Wheat Saison fermented with apple cider...changed the rye to wheat and added 1 gallon (per 1/2bbl) of apple cider. Gives it a very subtle cider flavor / finish. If we did it again, we would probably try two gallons of cider per 1/2bbl for a little more of a pronounced cidery tartness.

and by "sister," do you mean a completely different recipe with the same yeast?

Sounds interesting.

Did anyone do shorter than 5 weeks? I think I'll only have like 3 weeks before I bottle

I think I had it in primary about 4 weeks before bottling. I think it would be fine after 3 to bottle. 3711 is a quite the workhorse, and should get your down to your FG after less than a week, leaving a couple weeks of clean-up time, plus bottle aging.

Just checked the gravity 2 weeks after brewing: 1060 down to 1004! Holy attenuation Batman, 3711 is a BEAST! Hopefully it will taste fine when it is chilled and bottled, but the sample was OK, but 93% attenuation is probably too much?

Edit: after looking at the OP, 93% is right on. Can't wait to drink it

I found (in my experience) that this beer has a sweet spot of about 7 to 9 weeks. It was just perfect right there.....Not that it wasn't good a little after that (it honestly didn't last much longer than that) but there was something that really shined for me there. So I would recommend following the 5 week primary and 1 week keg/carbonate or 2 weeks bottle conditioning if needed.

Bottled today. I did notice a fair amount of bubblegum esters in the sample. I fermented it at 70 for about 8 days then let it rise to about 76 for the remainder. In hindsight I should have kept it at 70-71, but hopefully when it carbs it will go down a bit. I'm surprised 3711 produced these favors at that temp as I have heard people taking it up to the 80's
