Do you ever use coriander? It's really nice with orange peel.Tomorrow I’ll be kegging my best bitter and will be brewing another batch of my “Goofie” saison. I’ll be making a couple of changes to the recipe (as always ), I’m ditching the Amarillo hops, increasing the amount of fresh orange peel, and I’ll be adding just a tad of acidulated malt. I’ll put up the recipe tomorrow.
I’m planning on using the same water profile as that for my Czech lager, low level of minerals overall with a higher proportion of sulphates.
Out of interest do you dilute back to achieve 23 litres. I have the same boiler and I normally hit 21 litres in the fermentor. I have been brewing indoors so maybe I have a higher boil offAlso now got today’s batch of cardamom saison in the fermenter. OG is 1045 as expected and the Belle Saison yeast should bring that very close to 1000. What wasn’t expected - I didn’t check the condition of my cardamom pods and they’re really not fresh so I’ve had to improvise a little and made a cardamom tea from a small handful of cardamom pods. Not sure what the outcome will be - but a lesson learned.
The wort is nice though so I should get a nice saison - with or without cardamom flavour!
