- Product Details
A pre-modern Belgian style that was made in farmhouse breweries during spring. Saisons are brewed hoppy and fairly strong in order to keep through the summer, but these beers are fantastic all year long. A terrifically complex beer arising from the interaction of simple ingredients. Hops give a bracing bitterness and floral overtones, with striking spicy, peppery and earthy tartness from unique yeast. Serve in a wide-mouthed glass at cellar temperature to appreciate this beer's full range of aromas and flavors.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

4.4 / 5.017 ReviewsPure GoodnessDrinking this at almost three months in the bottles. No yeast starter and no secondary. Primary for 4 weeks then straight to bottles. Fermented indoors with blankets wrapped around carboy to stay warm. Used wyeast strain for the kit and taste delicious. Highly recommend just be patient.January 17, 2013My Favorite SaisonThis is what I look for in any of my Belgian style ales. It is spicy and has a very traditional flavor. This is my go-to for Saison compared to the lighter and more modern versions. This recipe beats all the kits I have purchased and recipes I created on my own.November 23, 2015Awe yeah.I used the Saison yeast the first batch even though I try to stick to recipies the first time through. This beer came out amazingly well I believe it may be better to bottle condition as it is Belgian but even from the keg wow! Just did my first 10 gallon batch and this is the recipie I used repitching last batches cake I cannot wait even another 30 daze is too long to go without a good SeshMay 5, 2012the best beer i've ever madeI actually made the extract version and used harvested Saison Dupont yeast but this is by far one of the best beers i've ever made. i'd even go as far as saying this was one of the top beers i've ever drank, ever; and i've been to belgium. i have to take a step back after every taste and stand in awe at it's amazingness.do yourself a favor and make this. ferment it warm though! like 85F warmOctober 26, 2011TastyFirst of all - the package got here during a heat wave (over 100F that day). Smacked the pack and waited... overnight. It was just a little swollen. Made a starter that took overnight to get going.. The yeast is fantastic! I saved someSeptember 2, 2011My first Saison!Love this recipe! an easy brew , I did 5 gallons that is still in secondary. Cant wait to crack em!January 9, 2014Never run out of this beer!Made this beer 5 times in a double AG batch with fantasic results every time. My wife whom wasn't a beer drinker, absolutely loves this recipe. The only bad thing about this beer is when there isn't any left in my keg!! Great job NB!!! Keep this one around!December 11, 2013One of my favorite / most successful NB all-grainsMade this last spring and had some friends over to taste it along with three or four commercial saisons - this turned out to be the favorite! Just a solid, fairly strong, straightforward version of the style - aromatic, spicy, summery. Some commercial versions use herbal additives but the NB version seemed flavorful enough to me without any additions.April 18, 2010May 21, 2016
Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 9 answersCan an all grain kit also be used as a BIAB ?BEST ANSWER: Yes. But you might want to mill your grains twice to help with conversion. Also, be sure to check your mash ph and adjust if necessary. I find with such a pale beer, it's hard to get the mash ph down to the recommended range. If you can't do either of what I recommend, I'd suggest a 90 mash to maximize conversion. Good luck and RDWAHAHB!
