Glad you had a great brew day. The day itself was perfect. Sounds like you'll have a lot of very tasty beer to enjoy.

The beer fest was a lot of fun and, IMO, very much worth the trip.

Great to know that there will be fellow HBTers at the festival. I'll keep an eye out for the red balloon ;) I'll be the one annoying the crap out of the people working the Kane booth :)

+ 1 with some love for Kane! Great beers. No slight to Carton, who makes plenty of good stuff, but I think Kane is better.

I'm just taking a guess, but it is most likely intended to concentrate the fermentable sugars in the wort. I'm interested in hearing the answer that others have as well.

Sounds like you are going to have a nice beer. I'm curious to know your recipe for this. The idea of a lemon ginger saison sound interesting.

Exactly. Your original post mentioned a lower mash temp, which will increase the fermentable sugars. A good yeast will have more sugars to eat and that means a higher abv, but should also mean a...

Yeah, you can add water if its pre-boil. That way the boil will purify the added water. If the post boil gravity is high, the you should only add distilled water to avoid infection.

To be honest, I don't really know how extending the time between mash out and boiling will effect the beer, but my guess is that you will be just fine as long as you keep the wort in a closed...
