Watch out, this one is pretty energetic!

Blew off the top with blow-off hose and sprayed goo all over the closet. To the drycleaners!

I just enjoyed my first Gulden Draak last week, and was impressed. I'm a noob, and I've been concentrating on getting a saison right, but think I got pretty close with my last rendition of Shipwrecked Saison. This looks like a worthy step up to something stronger....

I already have the grain bill and hops for my next saison. But I think I'll try this recipe after that, using the Danstar Belle Saison yeast I already have on hand.

But I'm going to have to upgrade my mash tun. The one I use now was made from a '20 qt' cooler that really only holds 16 qts. And while it has served faithfully and well, looks like it's time for an upgrade in size.

Which I happen to have, by the way. You don't hang out outdoors in Southern California, without accumulating ice chests in various sizes....

It's just a matter of drilling a hole in the side for the spigot, and transferring my copper manifold. Yes, the new one could hold a larger manifold. But I doubt it's worth building one, because I batch sparge anyway.
