Saison - 09/07/15

September 7, 2015.  109 days until Christmas Eve.

This is beer one of the tap list for this years Christmas Eve. A Saison is a orange colored beer with fruit and spice flavors from the Saison yeast strain. I used White Labs 585 - Saison III. This yeast is supposed to be fruity and produce an easy drinking beer.

Brew day was uneventful. I did throw a little spice in the end of the boil - 3 camomile tea bags.
I also used 1/2# brown sugar and 1/2# of white sugar.
This was also a split batch. I pitched a Brett Saison from The Yeast Bay into a separate carboy.

Fat Tire in Jamison!

First Fat Tire in Jamison

I picked up two beers in the Lips of Faith series so they are distributing their sours as well.
