This saison yeast is a beast, it ferments almost completely, I have seen this yeast drop down to almost 1.000 in the right conditions

I just ordered the ingredients for this. I couldn't get sorachi Ace, what would be a good substitute?

I told another a page or two back that I used the sorachi ace for the lemon flavor it imparts, so for a citrus note you could sub in centennial, which I find to have a bit of lemon flavor along with orange and grapefruit, then maybe add in the zest of a lemon in the last 5 minutes along with the pepper.

It may not be the same as using sorachi ace, but it should be a tasty beer with similar flavor as mine.

Thanks for the reply. I actually found them at farmhouse brewing supply. I just need to get some honey now. I am hoping to find some locally. Do you think it really matters what kind it is?

I think it would matter more in a mead, in this beer I think you are good using what you have available, that's keeping in the spirit of a farmhouse ale anyway!

I got some local honey today the person who sold it to me wasn't sure what it was. I am hoping to brew this next week if my ingredients arrive in time. I am just really into saisons right now, can't wait.

You are going to love this beer, simple in its complexity, or complex in its simplicity... one of the two.

I'm hoping to brew this next weekend. I'm assuming you used Sorachi Ace just because you had it laying around. I'm thinking it may play well with the yeast as a late hop, or even dry hop addition. Any thoughts?

I had it kicking around, but it was a deliberate addition to bring in some lemon flavor to the beer

Hi,
How long have you kept a saison in the secondary for? I was thinking about keeping it at 75 F for a month or so. What is your thoughts.

I was going to dry hop it for the last 10 days with a Saaz.

Cheers,
