1/2 ounce light French oak cubes in primary
Danstar Belle Saison yeast
Mashed at 149 F for 75 mins

My first time using the Belle Saison yeast. Took off within hours and went strong. After a week I pulled a sample and wasn't too impressed with the beer. I let it sit a total of a month in primary and then kegged it up a week before the competition. Tasted fantastic after that week in the keezer. We went through 5 gallons pretty quick.

I wish I had a better picture after it was fully carbed up.

Edit: Hmm. Couldn't figure out how to tag it as All-Grain. Sorry about that.
