Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: YEAST STRAIN: 3724 | Belgian Saison   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.058   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 15   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 Days   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days   
Tasting Notes: A slightly tart, refreshing beer. The yeast produces a distinct citrus/spicy aroma an   

Fermentables
6 lbs Pilsner Malt Extract
2 lbs Munich
4 lbs fresh red grapes

Grains
.5 lbs Golden Naked Oats
.5 lbs Honey Malt

Hops
.5 oz Perle (60 minutes)
2 oz Mt Hood (15 minutes)

Yeast
Wyeast 3724 | Belgian Saison

Steep grains at 160 degrees for 30 minutes.
Heat 2 lbs whole grape to 150 and turn off heat. Remove and puree and add to wort at flameout.

When racking to secondary, repeat the grape process with last 2 lbs and rack onto grape puree.

I was really nervous about ending with a wine/beer hybrid especially since I this was my second batch ever. Turned out great with a light tart flavor.

Definitely use a grain bag for the puree. That is unless you are kegging or like skins in the beer. The skins clogged my bottling tube constantly. I just used fresh grapes without freezing them. Make sure to double check your FG before bottling. I was too quick to bottle and have had a number of bottle bombs due to the addition of the fruit.

I have this entered in the Gnarly Barley Brew Fest here in CO so we will see how it does. Please let me know how it goes!

It stayed like that for about 3-5 mins. It was pretty good. The FG may end a little lower than 1.012. Just check it for a couple days in a row and bottle when it stabilizes.

I didn't really have any stalling but the grapes fermented for longer than expected so I had a few bottle bombs. No scores at brew comp. Probably because I tried rebottling some so they would not explode, therefore going flat.

That sucks then I might not add the grapes into secondary and ill just prime my bottles with grape concentrate, or the beer will need a long ageing time thanks for the info though better luck on next comp
