PumKING with Saison yeast?
Ello all, with fall approaching I'm gonna be brewing a Southern Tier Pumking
clone, imtending to use 1056, but thought about putting a twist on it. I'm all for experimentation, first brew was a black IPA with Belgian strong Ale yeast, turned out fantastic. I've never brewed with a Saison yeast, but I was wondering if the characteristics of either 3724 or 3711 may complement the aspects of this recipe.
14 lbs. 2-Row Pale malt*
1 lb. Victory*
12 oz. Crystal 80°L*
1 large Pumpkin (skinned, cubed and roasted with honey then added to mash)*
1 lb. Demerara sugar (added after hot break)*
3/4 oz. Magnum @ 60 min.*
1/4 oz. Saaz @ 15 min.*
8 oz. Lactose @ 15 min.*
1/2 tsp. Yeast nutrient @ 10 min.*
1 Whirlfloc tab @ 10 min.*
2 tbsp. chopped Candied Ginger @ 5 min.*
2 Cinnamon sticks @ 5 min.*
1/2 tsp. Cloves @ 5 min.*
1.2 tsp. grated Nutmeg @ 5 min.*
1/2 tsp. Allspice @ 5 min.*
1 Vanilla Bean (added to secondary)*
1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon (added to secondary)
The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts.
