Brewed 7-18-2015 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. 8-12-2015 SG 1.022 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. 8-18 SG 1.020 Was at constant 75F since 8-12. Upped the heating pad from low to medium. 8-30 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. 9-1 SG 1.014 Dropped .006 in 14 days. About .0043/day. Should be at 1.007 in about 16 days. Recheck 9-17. 9-10 SG 1.014 Seems to have stopped. Added another packet of hydrated Belle Saison. 9-11 Good fermentation resumed. 9-18 FG 1.010 7.9% ABV Works for me. 9-19 Bottled with 5oz priming sugar. 11-20 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.
