Jez and I brewed up our first attempt at a saison about 10 days ago. 7 kg of Weyermann pilsener, 1 kg wheat malt, 0.5 kg rye malt. 20 IBU.

After a week in the fermenter, the beer's already showing some impressive ester characters. Smells like citrus fruit and tutti-fruiti gum. Still sitting at about 1.026 after a week of primary at 26 C, but that's what saison yeast does. I think it's the Wyeast Dupont strain. Really, really impressed with this yeast.

I've drunk all my homebrew and I'm still worried.

This is what ive got planned for my next brew, a tweaked version of Tony's Sheep Shagger, im doing an 18 litre batch with czech saaz instead of NZ saaz and pellets instead of flowers (cos thats all I can get), but all the hops im using are grown in NZ anyway, so its still pretty much gonna be an NZIPA...

5kg Golden Promise
200g Carahell
200g Medium Crystal

60 mins : 12g saaz, 20g Southern Cross
15 mins :
12g Saaz, 8g Southern Cross, 12g Nelson Sauvin, 12g NZ Hallertau
Flame out : 24g Saaz, 24g Nelson Sauvin, 24g Hallertau, 8g Southern Cross

Will probably use US-05 yeast

Mum used to cut the shank off of a lamb roast and so did I untill someone asked me why, so I asked mum. She didn't know why she did it, just that Nan used to do it so we asked Nan - "because I only had a small baking dish" she said.

Pretty much because it was in the recipe Tony :lol:

It adds some chloride to emphasis the maltiness.

Screwy have you tried this recipe with calcium sulphate in place of the salt? It would suit the style better and help to bring out the hops... which in my eyes the recipe is lacking for an APA :p

Awe common.... you know you want to try the calcium sulphate, live a little :lol:

Used to use it but don't anymore, don't think my water needs it. I'm sure you'll begin to have flashbacks one day Jye, all those hops can't be good for you :p

I think it'll be some time off yet i've got a few cubes banking up + still some Pils & Munich malts but no Ale malt so that purchase will be a few months away at least.

I definately wont be using amarillo even though i would have liked to but i've got a load of cascade to use + i want to research some more recipies & try some more examples first. Maybe closer to xmas time :(
