Oddly enough, like Rick I have also experienced this with blowoff tubes. No idea why either. This is while the blowoff is bubbling away in the jar of starsan, if i push the lid down the bubbling stops for a while then starts back up as the lid starts to bulge again... Never had a lid come off yet th...

That sounds about right PP. Saison yeasts are beasts! Anyway, personally I never rack anything to secondary, I just leave everything in primary for 2 weeks or so and bottle. For your saison, if it were me I would probably give it another 5 days at least or a week for the yeast to clean up and call i...

Hah, my fermenting beers generally sit beside my bed on the floor or on the nightstand, usually both. My wife is not a huge fan of that, which is why building a garage this summer is as important to her as it is me. Unfortunately its not going as quick as I hoped, having never built a garage before,...

Should make a fine Saison PistolPatch. Only advice I would have is that 3711 yeast I find is not super 'saisony' compared to others so I would probably allow the temp to ramp up right away or pitch at higher temps if you want to get more of the saison character. Interesting mash schedule, I am inter...

Brew4me - I calculate it by the amt of grams of sugar per serving (says on the bottle) multiplied by how many servings in the bottle, then use a priming calculator for sucrose, I like my saisons around 3-3.2 volumes carbonation, so from that I usually get close. PP - I will take a look at the file t...

Brew4me, when I use Juice like I said above I batch prime with it instead of sugar, rather than add it to the fermenter. I suppose if you did add it to the fermenter you could compensate for it since you know the sugar content to the gram - unlike actual fruit. I have tried it but found I get better...

Apparently I was wrong on the simple version on the wheat percentage, it was quite a bit higher, but I'd be willing to bet it really doesn't matter hah. Also it was special B not aromatic, again other than the colour, probably made no difference. I should really check these things before I post, ah ...

Crap I just spent like 20 mins playing around trying to quote this and that from posts above and writing a bunch of replies and lost it all hah. My forum abilities are terrible for an IT guy. Anyway, I'll just do it my way without the fancy quoting etc. PP- sorry for the late reply been super busy l...

I have done 5 or 6 Saisons since I started brewing a couple years ago. I just looked through the recipes and each one was tweaked slightly from the last, the 6th one is completely different than the first, and honestly, they all turned out awesome IMO. They have won a few medals both as a Saison, an...
