Just finished bottling and kegging my first all grain Saison brew. I must say that I am extremely happy with my first attempt. Here is my recipe:
10lbs American 2 Row
1lb Smoked Malt
1oz Nugget Hops - 60min boil
1tsp Irish Moss
White Labs California Yeast
Saison Yeast Harvested from Sierra Nevada.
I mashed at 155F for 60min. I also made a yeast starter with both types mixed and pitched at 65F.
The brew was in the primary for 1 week at a temperature of 58-66F. The beer was fermenting in my garage thus the temperature fluctuations. I transferred the brew to the second fermenter for one week.
The flavor is nice and smokey with a hint of banana.
