  • Posted in thread: Summer Night (Dark raspberry saison) recipe critique on 11-25-2014 at 01:01 AM
    That sounds awesome. The general feedback on my saison was it was OK, but lacked something or
    that it was too tart.The black triple, or strong dark as son may argue, would be nice to try.
    Have you tri...

    I have opened 3 bottles so far and this stuff is perfection. Wife loves it, it tastes
    delicious, little bit of vanilla, little bit of chocolate, little bit of the oak/sherry from
    the bourbon. The sher...

    What yeast did you use. At 1.030 you're high, but could try to build a starter of s-04 or s-05
    and throw that in at higher temps to bring it down.Or what I would try build a starter of a
    Belgian strai...

    I assumed you've already kegged yours, but I added 250ml for 5 gal and its perfection. I used a
    local distillery's bourbon, finger lakes distillery aka Mackenzie. Its prettly smooth, after a
    couple ye...

    What's everyone's ratio of adding bourbon? I've seen conflicting amounts, from 1.5oz per gallon
    all the way up to 750ml per 5 gallon. I'm ready to keg 10 gallons tomorrow, and I'm not sure
    what I want...

    Personally I've thought about coming back to this recipe and using Sorachi Ace. Used as a
    bittering hop it still gives off some of its lemongrass character but not overpowering and it's
    high AA will g...

    Others her are more experienced than me, but I had a RIS and an Imperial Porter than looked
    similar during points of fermentation and they both ended up excellent, no infections.
    Definitely don't dump...

    Takes me a total of 15 min. to vorlauf, drain the mash, stir in sparge water, vorlauf again and
    runoff. I have brewed 469 batches and never had a stuck runoff.I agree that some don't take
    long to vorl...

    That's what a pulley is for :). For me I can save about an hour, sometimes more, not having to
    wait for wort to drain, deal with stuck sparges, etc. Its tough for me to get brewing time so
    if I can sh...
