Saazon - 07/19/2015
In an effort to help force myself to keep better records I'll be posting recent recipes and then doing tastings once the beer is finished. This beer is a result of MoreBeer in Concord, CA not having a contract for Nelson Sauvin hops and after disappointing me greatly I had to come up with a different beer on the spot... So I present my billionth saison.
But first a gratuitous photo of myself with the Blichmann himself...

We're also using O2 now for ~60 secs per 5 gal and yeast nutrient along with whirlfloc.
The French Saison yeast while not as tasty in my opinion as the Belgian strain is a beast... I'll let you know how it is in a few weeks once I have this beast on gas. Oh also did a starter a few days out!
May a beer be forever in your hand friends. Until next brew...
