NB Petit Saison D'ete

NB Petit Saison D'ete

Saison • All Grain • 5 gal


I wanted to re-crunch the numbers on a Northern Brewer kit recipe. I changed the Belgian Pils malt to Domestic 2-Row, and upped the ingredients to account for my system efficiency. I'm using French Saison yeast, but couldn't find it in the list.

The ale turned out nice and dry with a pleasant hoppy flavor. The yeast contributed some nice fruity esters that make it interesting. The Wyeast French Saison yeast is a winner. It's a great session ale, it's easy to have a couple of pints. I will definitely brew this again.
