Default All-Grain - Nelson Sauvin Dry Hopped Saison

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 3711
Yeast Starter: 750ml
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.050
Final Gravity: 1.008
IBU: 15
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 7 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Additional Fermentation: what?
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): I don't secondary
Tasting Notes: Tastes like awesome.

Malts and Fermentables

5lbs. Belgian Pils
3lbs. American 2-Row
2lbs. White Wheat Malt
1lb. Table Sugar
.25lbs Special B Malt 180L

Hops

1 oz. Willamette Hops 5.5%AA 20 minutes
0.5 oz. Nelson Sauvin Hops 12.4% AA 10 minutes
0.5 oz. Nelson Sauvin Hops 12.4% AA 5 minutes
1 oz. Nelson Sauvin Hops 12.4%AA Dry Hop - 7 days



Appearance - Golden orangish in color with pale straw highlights. The head poured rocky and chunky, just like you would expect in a saison. It's nice and cloudy, which is how I prefer my saisons. I don't really like them to be crystal clear. Leaves some bad ass lacing.

Nose - Even though the hops are dominant, the first thing I get is a candy sweetness (from the pilsner malt). That really helps to accent the hop profile. Over ripe pineapple followed by mangos and passion fruit. Behind that is a bit of spice, lemon peel then orange, finished with a slight breadiness (from the two - row).

Mouthfeel - I carbed this up to a shade over 3 volumes (3.2 actually) so it's very spritzy and full. The bubbles are very fine which just adds to the sprity mouthfeel. It has a nice bit of silkiness too, I find that you get this a lot with that Wyeast 3711 French Saison.

Taste - At first you get that impression of candy sweetness. In the middle there's a lot of the same that you get in the nose, but in different order. The spiciness is first followed by lemon and orange. The passion fruit comes next followed by the hop bitterness which is just enough to hold the beer up and keep it in balance. Right at the back you get the pineapple and mango then that candy sweetness impression that fades into the long and dry finish.

This looks really good! Now, if I could just find some nelson sauvin hops. Any suggestions? I've looked around the interwebs, and cannot find any for sale. AHS had them in stock for awhile, but they are gone.

I did check Rebel, but they are out. There is a note on that page that says, "Sorry, currently unavailable." Should have bought some from AHS when they were available, just a couple of weeks ago!

My LHBS has them. They're pretty expensive at $9 for 2oz. But if you're just dying to try them out. You can order from them online.

It's a damn good beer. I just picked up another 2oz. of the hops last night from my LHBS so I can get another batch of this going ASAP.

Somehow I managed to leave out the mash schedule.

I do a single infusion mash at 146 with a 1.5qt/lb. ratio. I do a 10 minute mash out at 168, followed by a double batch sparge.
