Just when it seemed that @Creeps McLane was ready to give up on competitions, he takes Tucson by storm with his saison!  So to commemorate the day, I put together a quick (but inspired) recipe -- a traditional saison fermented with the 'shirt off my back' Safale BE-134 yeast.  Additionally, to thank @JoshR and @MRB Tim for making the MUG comp. happen, I've included a Mr. Beer BrewMax Golden LME in the recipe for good measure.🍻

 

Saison de Frais

 

  • Weyermann Pilsner, 3 lb.
  • Weyermann Vienna, 1 lb.
  • Torrified Wheat, 0.13 lb.
  • Flaked Rye, 0.13 lb.
  • Aromatic malt, 0.25 lb.
  • BrewMax Golden LME, 0.55 lb.

  • French Strisselspalt (1.2% AA), 0.5 oz., 5 min.
  • Fermentis SafAle BE-134
  • Sorachi Ace dry-hop, 0.25 oz. on Day 12

 

Mash grains for 60 min. at 150-152 F.

Mash-out at 168 F for 10 min.

Sparge with hot tap water.

Boil 90 min, hopping as noted.

Chill wort to 70 F, aerate, and pitch BE-134.

Hope for a Packer win.

Ferment for 2-3 weeks.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, I'll also send a couple bottles of Saison de Frais to the first person that can correctly guess what I'm brewing tonight.  The only hint that I'll offer is I've brewed this one before.B)

Please god let it be the raspberry sour!!! Or the black Bavarian.

There may be a few hidden clues for anyone still playing along.

havent seen any clues.....did see that your saison de frais recipe posting, you were adding an LME to the recipe. if it goes too far back, it may pre date my being on this forum (early 2018). i give up......so many beers, so little time....

Doppelbock was close -- I've never attempted an all-grain version of one though.

 

But your intuition and astute use of the Forum search feature have paid off, as Winter's Draught Guinness is correct!  You win!🍻
