The Ginger Snap Saison Extract is light, clear, crisp. This is an excellent summer beer that can compete with Gaarden Hoe and Hank's Hefeweizen. Follow the instructions but leave it in the bottle for an extra month to smooth out a slightly bitter bite. The improved taste is worth the wait. I used B64 Imperial Yeast.
This beer turned out amazing. I ended up kegging it at 16 psi to give it good carbonation. I opted for the liquid yeast and used RO water with 1 tsp of gypsum and a pinch of baking soda. The mouthfeel turned out great. Great malty body and nice lightly hopped finish. I feel like I am sitting in a Belgian farmhouse while drinking a pint of this. Yielded about 5.7 ABV. Couldn't really detect any ginger flavor, but definitely a solid recipe.
The beer turned out like a decent saison, pepper and cloves very apparent. But no ginger flavor made it to the final product.
Inconsistent flavor from one bottle to the next. Important to make sure beer clarifies well before bottling.
This brew just kept getting better and better with time. I transferred the ginger from primary to secondary then added 4 teabags of apple spice during the last part of secondary. 8 weeks later this beer is a beautifully spiced ginger Saison that transports you to times in Belgium, walking the streets of Bruges.
