Just put a Saison/Farmhouse Ale to bed, using a year-old Wyeast 3726 Farmhouse Ale slurry I resurrected a couple of weeks back.
Recipe: 5 lbs each of 2-row and Pils, 2 lbs of Munich, a lb of crystal-60, and a cup of table sugar at flame-out (to help dry things out, as my mash temp was a bit warmer than i had expected). Hopping was 2 oz of Sterling whole hops, (9.3% AA) as FWH, with no hop other additions.
Beersmith tells me that this one should weigh in at ~1.070, 55 IBU’s, and ~10 SRM.
Is anyone else firing up their kettle today and/or sometime this holiday weekend?
Going to do my last two of the year.
Number 32 and 33.

I’m going to tackle Northern Brewer’s Baltic Porter all grain kit. But, I’ll be using Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager instead of the Cali. Lager. I can’t wait to try it…in a couple months. :cheers:
