Hi Nelson Saison



Recipe specifics:



Style: Saison

Batch size: 5.0 gal

OG: 1.076

FG: 1.019

Bitterness (IBU): 35.5

Color (SRM): 5.1

ABV: 7.5%



Grain/Sugars:



11.00 lb Pilsener (Belgian), 78.6%

1.00 lb Munich (German), 7.1%

1.00 lb Cane Sugar, 7.1%

0.50 lb Flaked Wheat, 3.6%

0.50 lb Flaked Oats, 3.6%



Hops:



1.00 oz Nelson Sauvin (AA 13.0%, Pellet) 60 min, 35.5 IBU

0.50 oz Nelson Sauvin (AA 13.0%, Pellet) 0 min, 0.0 IBU

1.50 oz Nelson Sauvin (AA 13.0%, Pellet) dry hop



Recipe Notes:


Used Belle Saison yeast.
Added tea to secondary. Tea was made with half pound of flowers steeped in half gallon of hot water.


Batch Notes:

Feel free to ask any questions. At two weeks in the bottle the peppery notes and funk of Belle Saison are coming through and holds hands nicely with the tart hibiscus and bitter and wine notes of the Nelson.

That beer finished at 1.019? I've used Belle Saison twice and both times it finished at 1.001 (90+ degree FL garage). What temp did you ferment at?
Beautiful beer, btw

No, thanks for pointing that out. That was the beersmith estimate. It finished at 1.0. It's a fantastic yeast. And thanks for the complement

I guess it could go under Imperial Saison?

That yeast is a beast for sure. Now, where is a good source for the hibiscus? If I can source those, this beer is on the short list.

Mexican grocery store would be your best bet. Im lucky enough to have a farmers market that sells a ton of hibiscus tea every day so I get freshly dried flowers. The older they are the more you will need.

Thanks for sharing the recipe,
I was going to brew a similar recipe that I've came up with but instead of Nelson I was thinking of using Citra and Cascade
(can't get nelson here) also I was thinking to add some spices (lemongrass, coriander, peppercorn, grains of paradise, chamomile) do you think they will work out with the hibiscus?
