Yeah, I'm going to try the three piece ball valve, and get some Teflon tape. I'll keep the gasket from the cooler as well. Thanks for your help!

Hi everyone,

I'd like to brew something soon, but can't guarantee my fermentation temperatures lower than 72-75. I can chill my wort to 60-65, but upon pitching, it will rise to the above temp. ...

Updating the late hops Flower Power..

Right at about three weeks, and I must say, this is an excellent beer. It's a bit darker than the real flower power, but the aroma is excellent (lots of tropical fruit and flowery citrus) and the...

Bottled what was to be a full batch of saison... until the bottling bucket fell over, dumping ~2 gallons of saison onto the floor. Ugh.

I did something similar, and it turned out really nicely. Only a 60 minute addition, followed by additions at 10, 5, and a post-boil whirlpool (30 mins)

Tasted a bottle of the late hop FP after only about 10 days carbonating. It's got some carbonating to do, but the honey and hops are lovely. I'd recommend this brew to anyone.

This, as well as the original recipe, look very interesting. To those who've tried this, to what extent is it similar to Tank 7? American hops, saison yeast, etc.

Interesting. I see Flying Dog Raging Bitch often calls for WLP400. Perhaps 410 would work there as well.
