  • Started homebrewing maybe 12-15 years ago. Eventually became brewmaster at a local brewpub in central New Jersey. When that closed, I left that industry. With children, I pretty much stopped brewing. Now I'm getting back into it -- kind of like riding a bike.

    So I wound up adding some Belle Saison, and it got going. It's down to 1.030.

    Give it at least 3 weeks.

    Generally, strike water should be about 1.3 quarts per pound of grain. Regarding sparge volume,
    why are you looking to collect 8 gallons? I assume you are making 5 gallon batches. Thus you
    are looking...

    It's varied, but generally low 70s

    I brewed a Saison on 6/17, with an OG of 1.069. Two weeks later it was only down to 1.046. A
