Update--I brewed my Belgian partigyle yesterday, and I think it came out great. Hit my volume and gravity targets almost right on the money, although I did forget to add the candi sugar to the saison until after the boil was over--I ended up boiling it separately and adding to the fermenter. I decided I'm going to buy some champagne bottles and do corks and cages for the tripel, hopefully it will be delicious when we open it for next year's NYE party! Anyone else brew a special New Year beer? Results?
For they garner the succulent berries of the hop and mass and sift and bruise and brew them and they mix therewith sour juices and bring the must to the sacred fire and cease not night or day from their toil, those cunning brothers, lords of the vat. -James Joyce
