Saison. I've tried a couple times, and they just end up coming out as fizzy junk.

Also, anything with coriander... but that might have more to do with my personal tastes than a flaw in the styles.

What yeasts have you been using? I haven't had a perfect saison yet either, but I'm really digging the smells coming off my latest one.

Up until about 2 or 3 kegs ago, it would've been a Helles. I worked a few different recipes, but couldn't get it right. I now have a one that's amazing that I'm making consistently.

Smakudwn - Have you tried Denny Conn's Amber? Easily the best one I ever made. I made it with Caravienne instead of Carared and it was still extremely awesome.
I agree... everyone "can make one" but to do a great one is tough. I think its because of the temperature, gravity, and pitch rate of the yeast.

I think saison is pretty easy but we all have our beer. I can brew a great saison but have failed on a few belgian dark strong ales.

Tried a Witbier twice now. First was.blah, second is better, but still not quite what I wanted. Used WY3944 if I recall, and my grain crush wasn't ideal, but still thought it would end up more like blue moon than it did (SWMBO likes Blue Moon).

every style I like, I'm wicked awesome at. I don't want to sound like I got a swelled head, but I do.



(I understand the irony considering my sig. I'm also a big smart mouth.)
