Just pulled a sample of this beer it's been fermenting for 2 weeks and still going slowly. Og was 1068 today the gravity was 1004 and tasted great in going to rack to secondary and possibly filter as I think the beer is strong and dry enough. May possibly enter into comp next week if I can get it carbed right

Just finished kegging my cottage 5 mins ago. Im doing 2.5 as well. My gravity sample smelled and tasted great. Can't wait til it's carbed.

I was goin to brew a citra IIPA 2 weeks ago but couldn't find any citra at LHBS's in my area. Did a Sorachi IIPA instead.

I carb mine to 3 volumes, I feel it compliments the dry mouthfeel

To me, high carbonation is an essential part of a saison. I do 3.0 or higher, always.

OG was 1.065, took a gravity reading exactly 1 week from pitching yeast and it reads 1.003 lol. Wyeast 3711 is a beast. The sample tasted great for being 8% abv

This was my thoughts when I first brewed this using the 3711, it could ferment out an old gym sock!

Do you think 1.003 is to dry? Any suggestions when I put it into secondary? Maybe I shouldnt have did a starter, lol
