Notes

Winner of the Quad State Beer Festival Competition 2016 (Belgian - Saisson - Wheat category)


Fermentation Note: Pitch 100 billion cells of WLP 300 onto chilled wort for initial fermentation (DO NOT MAKE A STARTER - UNDER-PITCHING IS KEY!) Ferment at 60 for 72 hrs.

After 72 hrs, raise temperature to 68
until airlock activity becomes minimal.

After airlock activity becomes minimal, reduce temperature to 60* for the remaining primary fermentation. No secondary fermentation is required, Rack to keg or bottle condition.
