Default Saison de Noel

All right, you bastards. NB sold out of their limited edition yeast (and kit) and now I can't check this out. It's up to you to report your findings!

I tried mine for the first time last night and it was wonderful.
I was sorry I had only chilled a couple of bottles as everyone liked it.

I fermented at room temp which ranged from 65 -80 depending on the day. Did not control it.

I kept it in primary for a week and secondary for 2 weeks.

I noticed there's a pretty large spread when it comes to using this yeast. I was thinking of using an electric blanket and with my digital controller to see if I can get the wort to stay in the low 80s. Dangerous? I guess we'll find out. Anyone else try it?

I currently have mine in the secondary for just under a week. Temp has been pretty fixed between 68-70. I had it in primary for 2 weeks and it was still bubbling after the first 10 days.

I've now kegged mine, but it seems to have a very high 'alcoholy' bite before you get to the all the great flavors this is supposed to have.

Am I crazy or did something else happen?
