    My main question is about the hops. Because I am going for a low bitterness and little aroma,
    does it make sense to do one charge at 20 minutes? It looks like this gives me around 25 IBU,
    and I would ...

    Thanks Eric. I did some tweaking on it. Replaced the chocolate with roasted barley and adjusted
    the IBUs a bit.I looked at the other recipes, they didn't match the advice so I was a bit
    confused. They...

    I would drop the chocolate for RB. about 2 oz or so. Color and roastiness. Like someone said,
    adjust the hops down some to 20 IBUs. Maybe only .5 for the second charge.

    I made the petit Saison kit last year just because it was on sale at local NB store, didn't
    know what a Saison was. Not really impressed with how it turned out.Sent from my iPhone using

    I bet if it is dry, then 3 vol would still be bright and effervescent. But that is probably
    pushing it for regular (or old, very used) bottles.

    Temperature is key. All the yeast by-products that you usually try to avoid - you want them.
    High 70s or even 80s. Someone can correct me on this, but I think the yeast produces the most
    esters and ph...

    Hey, don't be too hard on PBR. Afterall, if it weren't for beers like that, I might not be here
    right now trying to brew REAL beer! :)Oh, I'm not bagging on PBR at all. It is real beer, and
    it's my fa...

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go back to the cellar. I'm finding these responses to be very entertaining
    and enlightening. Conclusion? Yep, I'm really old and out of touch with "modern" America. Still
    having fun ...

    I don't think adding the extract early will cause a sour taste. A more bitter taste with the Mr
    beer extract being hoped but not sour. I use unhoped extract for full boils with no sourness. I
    would at...
