Antithesis - Saison du Vin Extract Kit w/ Steeping Grains

This mightily fruity hop-forward saison is like nothing you've had before - a paradoxical hybrid that will surprise you, and maybe make you rethink the line between beer and wine.

Sauvignon Blanc grape juice brings explosive flavors and aromas — green grass, tropical berries, Kaffir lime, and refreshing crisp acidity. This powerful grape is both balanced and enhanced by New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops and the wine-like character of French saison yeast.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Is a yeast starter recommended for this kit?
Okcbrewer on Jun 9, 2015
Best Answer: I would definitely recommend a starter for this one (or any beer over 1.050). You'll have a much healthier fermentation.

On the Recipe instructions, it says 1.5 oz of hops at 20min on the ingredient list, but in the directions it says 15min. Any thoughts on which one is the correct one?
Keith K on May 16, 2015
Best Answer: Thanks for pointing that out! You should boil them for 15 minutes.

What additions would you recommend to bump up the OG to ~1.08 or higher?
After Forever on Jun 1, 2015
Best Answer: Northern Brewer does not recommend altering the kits. It changes the results and voids any replacement guarantee. If you want a higher alcohol kit we recommend buying one that is rated for higher alcohol, or using a recipe calculator to adjust hop rates.

Why do you recommend dry yeast during the summer months for this beer?
Jared W on May 2, 2015
Best Answer: During shipping, dry yeast can handle the high summer temperatures better than the liquid options. Even though we do offer ice packs for shipping liquid yeast, those often defrost during longer transit times.
