Saison D'Ete

by TerryMartin

This recipe came from the (I think) 2007 AHA winner's circle, gold medal. Turns out it was created by one of the owners of Funkwerks - the GABF 2012 small brewer of the year, who won a couple golds that year, including in Saison. He gave me some great advice on the beer. It was styled after Hennepin.

This beer came out incredible. FG ended up at 1.003, it was nice and crisp. After about a month in the keg, it really came together. Next time would lager for 30 days before tapping. I let the fermentation temp start at 68 for a day, then let it free rise to 74 over 2 more days, then let it free rise to 80+ after about 7 days. The wlp585 was kinda in between 3711 and wlp565. Will definitely be brewing this again next summer.
