Split batch of American Saison fermenting away. WLP670 (American Farmhouse) and WLP566 (Saison II) in the other. Both sitting tight at 73-75F 14 hours after pitch.



Loose lids on top for first 9-hours then I switched to cheesecloth since I had krausen. Hoping to keep my Saison yeast happy.

I'm not even close to brave enough to try that. It would be a cat hair saison within hours. Good luck.

My dogs live upstairs. My basement is a dog-free zone and it'll only be wide open for about 2-days. It's cool to watch. The Brewing TV guys did an open ferment some time ago and I've always thought it'd be fun to try. I am a little edgy since the air is not still in that room, but I think it'll do well.

Awesome! I've been seriously considering a Saison as my next brew... the temps in my fermenting room are just about right.

Any chance you could post your recipe and/or process?

Absolutely, I'll post it all....can anyone tell me the easiest way to export a BeerSmith Recipe to xml? BeerTools has a cool button for it. I'll post the recipe, what I did and ho it turns out. I am planning to cover them loosely tomorrow with their lids.

Can't help with BeerSmith, sorry... but I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've done.
