  • Posted in thread: Spruce Tip Saison with Rye and Mosaic Hops on 07-03-2013 at 04:09 PM
    Update.This beer has been in secondary 9 days. Most noticeable flavor/aroma is the spruce. It
    is slightly astringent - perhaps from tannins leaked in by the needles, but I am confident this
    will subsi...

    True, when it comes to Saison - nothing is "typical". But I've had several commercial beers,
    along with several homebrews, using orange peel in a Saison, and think it is a good flavor. But
    this is why...

    Thanks. I'm thinking Mosaic specifically for its fruit notes, as I won't be adding any orange
    peel that is typical with a Saison. Good thought on the spruce at flameout - would you leave it
    to steep w...

    I see 44 views but only one response. I'm planning to brew this Sunday, so any thoughts would
    be greatly appreciated... Also, I am considering saving my mosaic hops for a future IPA, and
    bittering thi...

    Yep, I used the bright green new growth tips, wait several days after they shed the brown
    coverings for them to ripen. The five minute addition added very subtle sweet-pine flavor, so
    I'm going to try...

    Just harvested new growth tips from a white spruce. Last year I made a Spruce stout, that after
    6 months in the bottle tasted great - went light on the spruce, 2 oz at 5 mins, but it was just
    enough t...

    Definitely the best beers for reharvesting are true import Belgians - sure you can buy the WLP
    or WYeast strains, but they lack the traditional "flare" of their original counterparts...I
    just found a ...

    I definitely recommend designing your own recipes, just be prepared for a few to not turn out
    great, but when they are good -- they are REALLY good!!!

  • Posted in thread: a complete list of breweries to harvest yeast from on 05-04-2013 at 07:34 PM
    I have successfully harvested yeasts from several Belgian Imports, including Chimay, La Trappe,
    and La Chouffe. As long as your ingredients are spot on for style, and your sanitation methods
    are prist...
