BeerCoAU - Blue Sky Grisette All-Grain Recipe Kit Grisettes are light, refreshing European-born beers originally brewed for miners in Belgium’s Hainaut province. Low in alcohol they were designed to refresh workers after what must have been a cramped, taxing day below ground. Grisettes are brewed with malted wheat, his detail is perhaps their defining characteristic, because many Belgian beers of that period would have been brewed with unmalted wheat. Grisettes also have noticeable hopping levels. Here we have designed a clean simple and sessionable and wylie Grisette for you to enjoy as Spring arrives and at an ABV that will not slow you down as you get about your busy day of digging through your chores. But if I work all day at the blue sky mine (There'll be food on the table tonight) Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mine Cheers! #brewhappy #drinkhappier #enjoyresponsibly This is a starting point with grainbill and hops for the All-Grain Kit. Adjust equipment profile, mash profile and efficiency as per your own setup. Brewing salts and kettle finings such as Whirlfloc are optional , the recipe would benefit from a simple addition of 5g Calcium Sulphate mixed with the grains at the start of the mash. Method: 1. Mill the grains and dough-in targeting a mash of around 3 Litres of water to 1 Kg of grain (a liquor-to-grist ratio of about 3:1 by weight or around 17 Litres) and a single infusion temperature of 66-7 °C. 2. Alternatively, if you are game you can step mash with the following steps: Step Mash: 10 minute rest at 42° C (108° F), 1.5 L/kg (0.7 qt./lb.). 15 minute rest at 52° C (126° F), 2.4 L/kg (1.15 qt./lb.). 50 minute rest at 65° C (149° F), 3.5 L/kg (1.7 qt./lb.). 30 minute rest at 72° C (162° F), 4.6 L/kg (2.2 qt./lb.) 3. Sparge with approximately 75–80° C (167–176° F) water 4. Sparge: Fly Sparge slowly with 16 Litres of 77 °C (170 °F) water, collecting wort until the pre-boil kettle volume is around 25.0 L. 5. Boil: 90 minutes. 1st Saaz Hop with 50 g at 90 min and 2nd Hop Saaz Addition of another 50 g at 15 min. Add Yeast Nutrient with 15 mins of boil remaining. 6. Cool wort and transfer to the primary fermenter oxygenating wort and pitching Liquid GigaYeast or Lallemand Brewing Belle Saison Yeast at 18° C 7. Fermentation: If using a pure-culture, follow the guidelines for ordinary grisette and allow an extra day or two at warm temperatures if needed. The beer can be packaged at approximately 2 weeks old and consumed fairly fresh. This allows for grisette to modernize, changing from an aged mixed-culture historic beer into a modern pure-culture beer that is consumed fresh. 8. If using a mixed culture, ferment with your chosen blend until primary fermentation is complete. At this point, age at cellar temperature for 2–5 months (or longer if the FG is not yet stable) before packaging. 9. Packaging: Bottle or keg at 9–10 days from the start of fermentation (or longer if needed for clarity and complete fermentation). A slight haze is OK and likely would be fitting for the beer. Shoot for around 2.8–3.1 volumes (5.6–6.2 g/L) of CO2, depending on when I am packaging and the yeast I am using. 10. Optional Extra: Dry hop with ≤1 g/L (≤0.13 oz./gal.) Goldings or Willamette for approximately 4–5 days, starting at the end of fermentation when the beer would be cooled down. 11. Bring up to beer cellar temperature 6-8°C pour into a goblet glass, slip off your miners hat and work overalls and slip into your Hawaii Shirt and enjoy responsibly, Prost! 12. Food pairing - Rustic beers call for rustic foods, and French provincial cuisine is a great choice. A simple roasted chicken with garlic and herbs calls out for an easygoing Grisette. Bouillabaisse and shellfish pair well with Grisette as does funky fromage - try a washed rind cheese or a delicate ripened goat cheese. The spicy side of Grisette makes it a great partner for aromatic Asian or Middle-Eastern dishes. Grilled red meat like a cracked-pepper crusted steak. You can't go wrong pairing saison with charcuterie. Grissette will complement a wide range of smoked, cured, and confited meats or some gourmet sausages!
