I'll be brewing my dark version of this on Friday. Haven't found the pink pepercorns yet, but will search again after work tomorrow.

Just finished brewing a dark version of this. I didn't use the peppercorns, and my OG is 1.072. I expect it to finish really dry, so should be 9% or more.

Gravity sample tasted great.

I pitched it onto a 3711 yeast cake from another saison I brewed, which finished at 1.000 and tastes amazing! I'll try to post the recipe.

Not being a peppercorn expert.... how much difference is there between the flavor of black and pink peppercorns?

Pink was almost perfume like to me. Maybe others had a different experience. I'm going to try green peppercorns this year.

Except that, apparently, pink peppercorns are not peppercorns at all

We have a great market in Columbus that I frequent when I'm in the area that has a spice store. Try to find something like this in your area. Go there and tell them that you are using it in beer. I've had all sorts of cool conversations with the employees about adding other neat spices to beer, mostly on their recommendations. My favorite part is that you can pick up and smell whatever you want before buying it. I could spend all day sniffin crap there.

Have my pink "peppercorns" and will be brewing this over Memorial Day Weekend. Curious though.... What is the purpose of multiple step sparge?

Mash in 11.55 qt at 164 Hold at 148 for 75 min
Batch sparge .46 gal at 175
Batch sparge 2.08 gal at 175
Batch sparge 2.08 gal at 175


.... and how important is it? I have traditionally fly sparged.
