Pitched yeast 7-19
OG 1.073 but that was before I pitched the half gallon yeast starter, so the original gravity is probably closer to 1.07-ish.
Added 2 pounds of honey at flame out. Will add 1 pound during fermentation.
Strong honey flavor. Cloudy. Fermentation maybe halted. Wrapped it in a heating pad. I may need to pitch more yeast if that doesn't kick start fermentation again.
Was at constant 75F since 8-12. Upped the heating pad from low to medium.
Heating pad on medium didn't change temp. Stayed at 75F. Switched back to low. Turned off after a few more days. Been at about 68F for a week or so. Still bubbling slowly. Last time my saison took nearly 5 weeks to ferment to completion.
Dropped .006 in 14 days. About .0043/day. Should be at 1.007 in about 16 days. Recheck 9-17.
Seems to have stopped. Added another packet of hydrated Belle Saison.
Good fermentation resumed.
Works for me.
Bottled with 5oz priming sugar.
Probably the most elegant beer I've brewed to date. Frankly I prefer a drier saison but this is still pretty remarkable. Somewhat nectary, like a mead.
