For this year's Big Brew, Chip Wlaton and I collaborated on a Saison.  We added some stuff to personalize this beer, and the results were amazing!

Watch out for this yeast, it's super stubborn!  I had mine on a heating pad on low for 8 weeks to keep the temperature at 85 degrees.  It was worth it, this came out very dry - tangy and citrusy!  Yummy!

Here's the stuff:

Notes

Chip and I brewed this for the Big Brew 2009.

What a pain in the ass yeast! This stayes on the heating pad on low for 8 weeks. The results were worth it - very dry and quite tangy and cirtusy. Well worth it!
