Hoppy belgian Saison
« on: September 01, 2016, 03:34:56 PM »
I'm looking for a recipe for a hoppy Saison, 5 gallon batch. I have a pack of liquid Saison yeast soon to be expired and would like to brew something different during the long weekend.

Any ideas?

Smash Saison. Pils, and a hop to compliment the yeast strain. Nelson Sauvin if you have it. Azacca works well. Mosaic. Mash @149. Keep ibus below 35.

What strain do you have?

Go heavy on the flame out and dry hop additions.

This is the yeast: WLP565 Belgian Saison I Yeast

For hops I only have: Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, Amarillo, Warrior, EKG.

Maybe I should order better hops and brew this beer when I receive them in couple weeks?

Amarillo could work well. Have you used that strain before? It tends to stall and needs a bump in ferm temp to finish off if I remember correctly.

Ok I will use Amarillo and keep it under 35 IBU.

I have used Saison yeast before, I start the fermentation in my basement for few days, then I bring the fermenter upstairs and let the temp go up to 23-24C. If it doesn't finish I pitch US05.
