    The malt provides enough nutrition for the yeast so ro water is no issue for that. I usually
    use a nutrient any way as it gives me a little better attenuation and happier ferment. The only
    issue with ...

    Looks pretty normal to me. I generally don't worry about the krausen, it does weird things and

    Generally you should add the hops after the fruit, if you want the hop characteristic to be

    as it is, in part because a wheat-heavy saison is supposed to be a little cloudy anyway. Looks

    Apparently Aston Villa is very eager to be rid of Brad Guzan, they've made him a free transfer.
