Awesome, I think you will be very pleased when it's done. We turned ours around rather quickly (7 weeks grain to glass).

Yes, it was rock sugar. I want to say we got it from William's Brewing, they had the darkest SRM.

Yes, packaged the entire batch into bottles. Used DME for priming.

16E - good thing for those specialty categories! It is tough to fit most of our brews into a style category. Funny note to add, we actually meant to add another pound of the dark sugar at flameout but since it was so damn cold we simply forgot

If you could link the product that would be great. Also, did you bottle condition these? I kegged a batch of Saison and bottled from the keg for a competition to about 3 vols and got dinged for under carbonating.

EDIT: And one more questions, did you enter as a specialty Belgian (16E) or a Saison? It seems pretty dark for a saison.

Brewed this today. Only had a Lb of rye by accident I purchased too little. I also added a half Lb of oats. And I used some cardamom spice and Ginger in whirlpool.

I prepped a 1.5 liter starter a few hrs before pitch. Again poor planning. Pitched it into a very oxygenated wort and it was fermenting in about 2 hrs.

It is an animal yeast.

i certainly won't be able to wait 7 weeks- this puppy will most likely be carbed in the keg by week 4, we'll see how it progresses though.

you dont happen to have any pics of this poured, do you? curious to see the color difference.

i think i may use this yeast for my ginger beer... i think it the citrus and esters would be a welcomed addition.

It sure is - since you added the sugar into the fermenter that definitely helped it along

I want to make this one, and would like to use turbinado instead. But I want that darker color. What should I add to get it to ~19 SRM? I was thinking a tiny tiny bit of Carafa III (2 oz) that hopefully at that small amount wont add any roastiness? Any suggestions? Thanks
