16/08/2016 Brew Day – Used 500g oat hulls to prevent a stuck sparge and no no troubles with lautering.

04/08/2016 – Bottled with 169g glucose (18 litres @ 3.2 vol). Got 12 x 750ml and 17 x 500ml bottles from the batch. Looks pretty cloudy. Almost yeasty, but it’s been sitting in the fermenter for ages.

07/10/2016 – This is tasting amazing. I think the OG is the sweet spot for me as far saisons are concerned. Just enough alcohol there, but not overwhelming. Fantastic yeast character, big lemon and pear aroma and flavour. Carbonation level is high but perfect.

22/11/2016 – This really is lovely. No alcohol burn, but big flavour. Tart saison character, but some balancing malt sweetness.
