I brewed 10 gallons of saison, split the wort into two clean and sanitized carboys, and
fermented one with white labs saison III and the other with Gigayeast saison #1. Both fermented
in the low 70s t...
Posted in thread: Funky beer lover correlation to mushroom lovers? on 02-11-2015 at 05:30 PM
I think the relationship is not as far fetched as the replies here suggest. After all, yeast is

After a few weeks in the bottle, this turned out quite nice. Fruity hops backed with a mild
peppery flavor, dry but with nice mouthfeel. Still seems pretty reserved compared to the saison
