- 4.7 / 5.030 ReviewsFinally found my go-to SaisonOk.. I love a good saison, but have struggled to find a recipe I really like. This is it. Reminds me of Stillwater's Cellar Door.. Nice flavor, just a hint of the lemongrass and organge. Very nice dry, slightly peppery finish. Honestly, I can't believe how good it is for such an easy brew. Like other have said, a little darker in color, but still tastes light. The Wife love it too. Just brewed a second batch that I tweaked with Brett Yeast and little extra hops.. but that one will be sitting until at least June. Will follow up..April 13, 2016Great Aroma and TasteWow the Orange and Lemon grass aroma really come s through. A nice clean taste and head.December 16, 2013Brew was exceptional. I've addedBrew was exceptional. I've added it to my annual must-do list.September 30, 2015Great beer for summer BBQsMy first really successful brew. Lots of fruity notes and has just a little spicy bitterness from the hops.August 1, 2016Solid recipe needs some time to get better1 week in primary and then about a week or so of cold crashing and carbing in the keg and its great. week later and its gotten even better. really easy drinking and a ton of flavor.April 12, 2016Great serviceMy order arrived on time and intact. Quality all throughout. Can't wait to craft this amazing Saison. Thank you!March 21, 2016Smelled greatI brewed this over the weekend and the smell once all the additions were added were wonderful. I cannot wait to try it. Final gravity was slightly lighter than on the box 1.048 but I contribute that to the loss at the bottom of the brew kettle. One recommendation is to use bags for the hops and orange and lemongrass addition to increase volume yield.March 21, 2016Certainly ExtraordinaryAm brewing my second batch now. First one was a big hit with all who tried it. The Lemongrass and Orange peel really add a nice freshness to the taste, and seem to cool you off on a hot summer's eve. The Petite Saison has been a longtime household favorite, and this may have replaced it.Dealing with the extra "floaters" during transfer to secondary, then to the bottling bucket, and then to the bottle caused a bit extra effort. However, even when some of the lemongrass and orange peel made it into a bottle it stayed at the bottom and was not an issue. I ran the wort through a two screen filter, but still left some residue.I chose to do the optional 15 minute wait after the boil and before the chiller. (BTW-this was the first time I used a NB wort chiller instead of an ice bath, and it is totally worth doing if you are on the fence as I was)This one is a winner!August 22, 2013WonderfulGreat, Did I say great? Awesome flavor. I would say get an additional muslin bag for the lemongrass and orange peel I lost almost a gallon so they should include an extra in the kit.. Its sold out that says enough :)May 20, 2013Great Summer BeerI made this one a few months ago. Gave it the 15 min. Hot Stand at the end and then chilled it off. Had some floaters in the primary but no big deal. Left in the primary 2 weeks, 2 weeks secondary, and tried one after one week in the bottles. No carb at all. Another 2 weeks later, this beer had a nice off white head with residual effervescence from the bottom of the glass.Definitely give it the extra time, it's worth it.This beer has a great nose to it. The lemon grass really adds some nice esters and spice notes to it, and you really taste the orange peel. I may add some honey to it next time just for an extra flavor note. Definitely a great summer beer. Hide some for later, this one will disappear fast.August 29, 2013
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answersI love a good saison, but hate sour beer. Is this sour at all?BEST ANSWER: Definitely not. Typically it's the yeast that makes it sour so as long as you're not using a wild type yeast (Brettanomyces or similar) it won't be sour.I purchased this kit last week and will probably brew this weekend. I input the hops into an ibu calculator and for my situation shows an ibu stregnth of 50 for my 4 gallon boil. This seems high for a saison. Has anyone else felt this to be slightly high? What affect would reducing the first hop addition to .5 oz to bring the ibu to 29?BEST ANSWER: I brewed this a year ago in 4 gallons. Found the result to be most excellent using 45-, 15-, and 5-minute additions with a tack-on of a 15-minute hot stand after flame out. Did come out with some hoppiness, and happiness from associates, and it blended well with the spices. Kits lime this aren't especially driven by the BJCP, and in this case the result was exceptional. YMMV
