I need to do more with rye, I love the bite, I might try a classic Roggenbier, I have been meaning to brew one for about a year now.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to try this. Would you say the honey and black pepper are an absolute must?

The honey bumps the ABV as well as to dry the beer a bit so it has a nice crisp finish, and the pepper adds a subtle bite to the beer that I find pairs well with the yeast driven flavors.

I would try it as is first and adjust on your second batch.

Since the honey ferments almost completely out and the pepper is more in the background you may find that you like it as is.

Thanks for the info. To carb this correctly how much sugar would you add for a 5g batch? I am definitely going to bottle this. I think these work best carbed on the low end. Agreed?

IIRC, Saisons can be carbed up to 3 volumes and be "within style."

I keg, and have this saison set at 3 volumes. that would be 6.11 oz of corn sugar according to brewheads assuming a 68 degree fermentation temp to get you to 3.0 volumes if bottling.

I prefer pretty highly carbed saisons, myself. Adds to the sensation of dryness, while boosting the mid-palate body a bit.

I forgot to specify, the corn sugar addition is calculated assuming 5 gallons into the bottling bucket.

I would like to add this to my brew plan for today, but I didn't make a starter. With this yeast, I think it will be fine... Any suggestions?
