    What kind of yeast are you using and what are your fermentation temperatures?

    sediment.Took a gravity reading of 1.020.. it supposedly is supposed to finish at around

    A friend of mine came by yesterday for a jar of my 3711. His 3724 saison, with an OG of 1.065,
    was stuck at 1.030. Ouch. We'll see if 3711 can bring it down. He's kept the saison in his
    garage (in FL,...

    There was a time when you hadn't tried 3724.Don't fear the unknown.Or....if it's not broke,
    don't fix it! Maybe I should split the next saison just to be sure.

    After much comparison I have to disagree, somewhat. 3711 is a lot easier to use, but really
    doesn't make a great tasting Saison. I'm very intrigued by the option of starting with 3724 and
    then using 3...

    If your temp has gone from 64 to 75, I'm betting you are fermenting away.

    And concerning the bottling piece--I try to think about the end result! I don't mind bottling
    although admittedly I don't find it overly exciting either....However, by the time it's ready
    to go in the...

    As an American living in Belgium, it thoroughly pisses me off to see a fellow American drink a
    fine Belgian beer right from the bottle! My boss hosted a New Year's Reception this year and
    had Westvlet...

    Hi,I would like to join / start a homebrew club in the BENELUX. Homebrewing is my hobby and I
    spend much time in pursuit, but I have problems finding folks I can relate to. My wife can only

    That good to hear. You hear so much about sanitizing that you think everything will cause an
    issue.I agree. If you visit the forum often, you will start wondering how it's even possible to
    make a dece...
