    BrotherBockThanks for the resurrection!This is a beer I brew once a year, and is a favorite of
    all my friends and fellow homebrewers.I have revised the recipe slightly since inception.Not
    sure what si...

    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!!!
