    Saison on leftover yeast from Belgian Tripel?

    So brewed a Belgian Tripel 2 weeks ago with a double smack pack of 3787. Temps were between 74 and 82 the whole time. OG was 1.065. This tripel reached 1.004 a couple of days ago and I thought, "hey, can I reuse this for a variation of my high grav saison? (8.5%) As I understand it, overpitching...

    Belgian Golden Strong Ale The Mighty Gnome

    I love a good yeast driven beer. How satisfying is it to brew something that ends up with flavours that you didn't even add, thanks to the work of our microscopic friends? That was my challenge with brewing a strong, pale Belgian beer - brew a big, pale Belgian beer without using spices, that...

    Tripel with Saison Yeast and Temps

    Hey everyone, My wife’s favorite beers are Tripels, and I’d like to brew one. However, I don’t have temp control yet, and all the yeasts I see for Tripel recipes require that. Is it possible to brew a Tripel or Tripel-like beer with Saison yeast at the stereotypical warm temps Saisons are...
