Notes

Fermentation Schedule (influenced by http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/guide-saisons-and-saison-yeasts):

  • Configure Tilt Hydrometer to post fermentation stats to Brewer's Friend
  • Three days @ 65F
  • Unplug chest freezer and remove airlock (replace with sanitized tinfoil). This is to help prevent the yeast stalling out due to potential sensitivity to back-pressure.
  • Ramp to 82F over two days
  • Slowly ramp to 87F over 5 days and hold until fermentation is complete (1-6 days)
  • Replace airlock
  • Disconnect heater and mature for another 10-15 days
  • Cold crash to 34F for a week
  • Package (naturally carbonate in keg)
