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.
  • Summit (16.7% AA), 0.2 oz., 60 min.
  • Styrian Golding (2.6 AA), 0.5 oz., 20 min.
  • Styrian Golding, 0.5 oz., 10 min.
  • 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.

 

OG 1.065

IBU 28

SRM 6

ABV 6.8%

 

Thanks for the beers Creeps and good luck on your future brews!:)

Friends call me: Fresh

 

@Creeps McLane -- I thought I nailed it with 'Season of Fresh' but we'll see what this tastes like before I commit to it, haha.

The 'Packer win' step is optional, but you're welcome!🍻

I did add the Sorachi Ace dry-hop per @Creeps McLane's recommendation for that extra bit of 🍋🍋🍋 flavor and aroma.

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)

Another good guess but you'll have to go further back than that one!

Nope, this is an all-grain batch except for the addition of a single Mr. Beer BrewMax LME.

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!🍻

I'm obviously just catching up on the forum, as this post is about a week old lol. I just wanted to say that I feel like this contest was rigged. 

Besides, weren't you going to send @Creeps McLane beer anyway? :lol:

i hope all is well with everyone. I've been busy with work but things are winding down. Graduated another class of Soldiers last week and have been busy moving barracks this week. I'm looking forward to two weeks of leave over the holidays.

I tried to just do the investigation but let someone else guess. Heres the problem with that. @Bonsai & Brew posted this around 8 or 9 pm right? Thats when all you old men drink your warm milk, take your liver pills and head to bed. Meanwhile im slaving away at work and at 1am when i got home i was delighted to have a little game to play. You guys were sleeping, i was winning. Go me

See? He even knew the best time to post to increase your odds!

Honestly, reading through the thread of guesses made my head hurt. @Bonsai & Brew is a brewing machine, so there are plenty of beers to guess from (even with the hints).

I will admit that letting @Creeps McLane get away with multiple guesses per post might seem unfair, but I figured that since I had pitched my yeast, the contest was technically over anyway.:D  For anyone still wondering about the hints, I thought the picture of me hoisting a Bindlestick Hoppy Wheat in a Guinness pint glass with a kettle of black wort chilling in the background would give it away, but I'll try to give better hints next time.
