Update 1:
I kegged this batch on Sunday. The FG for both was 1.01 with starting gravity of 1.052. The forbidden fruit fermented a little faster, with a caveat. I did a 1.5L yeast starter for...

I think most people transfer before dry hopping so it isn't usually an issue.

I dry hop in primary but don't normally re-use yeast. I would think you could get a clean pour of yeast with minimal...

Forbidden Fruit (3463) vs. Belgian wit (3944) Experiment

I just brewed a 10 gallon batch of wit on Saturday and pitched forbidden fruit in 5 gallons and Belgian wit in the other. I figured I'd post the results of the experiment here and update when I have...

Yeah, I probably should have used a different yeast, maybe tried something from white labs. However, I had already purchased.

I may try and pitch forbidden fruit after fermentation slows. Let...

Tips for incresing the fruitiness of a saison

I brewed a very simple Saison last year, (pilsner, wheat malt, a little vienna) 1 lb of sugar (added near the end of fermentation) and hallertau hops.

Mashed at 148 and using 3724. Fermentation...

Thanks to all that confirmed a 20lb + mash is possible with a similar set up. I will forgo purchasing a false bottom and be sure to do water first.

I now have a drain on my brew pot so it makes...

Water first worked well. I still may switch to a false bottom before I do 20lb again, but this worked.

Thanks all. I'm going to give the bazooka screen another shot with a lot of grain. Back to water first this time too.

Can a bazooka screen mash it?

Can a bazooka screen handle 15 lbs of grain in a 10 gallon cylinder cooler. I know the grain will fit as I just did 20 lb, but the mash didn't drain, much less the sparge. It was not fun.

For...

I prefer to give them a Belgian dubbel or Weizenbock. That usually sets the record straight on color.

I thought it might be helpful to someone in the future to follow-up.

Apparently refrigerating the starter before it was finished fermenting didn't prevent the beer from drying out. After 5 (or 6)...

Just decided to post final comments. I ended up brewing the centennial blonde and an ESB. The gifts were extremely well received and I'm now on the hook for future years.

Next year I may add...

That looks great. I think that vaulted to number 1. Given the number of replies, it seems like the beer version of apfelwein.

Thanks for all the ideas. I'll survey my coworkers with all the...

I'll be doing AG. I don't think I can turn a saison around fast enough. My last one was still fermenting out after 5 or 6 weeks. Another week (5 days) to carbonate and I think I'm out of time for...

Definitely a drinkable style, but the last time I brewed it fermentation lasted 5 weeks, maybe 6 (3724). Damn that's a good beer. I might have to go pour myself one now.

What temp do you ferment it at? I find most commercial examples overpowering with banana, which is why I started drinking, and brewing, more wits.

Edit: you are kind of convincing. A beer with...

Thanks for all the responses. It seems a wheat beer should certainly be one of the beers based on the responses. Maybe American Wheat is safer than a wit which I brew every year. I was kind of...

Brewing beer for client gifts, what would be the best styles?

I'm going to stay away form an IPA because people tend to love it or hate it.

Any suggestions?

I pitched at 67, will let it ramp up naturally and then use a brew belt. I'd be ecstatic if it got down to 1.004.
