    Brewed this back in late Sept. Be cautious on the fermentation temp, the Wyeast 3724 stalled at around 1.030 @ 68 degrees. I was informed this yeast is common to do so. Next time i will start at 68 degrees F and ramp up after a few days into fermentation. I ended up re-pitching and finished out at 1.008. Great recipe overall, Azacca hops go great with the funk of the yeast.



    Love Azacca hops! They have such a great array of aromas and flavors. This Saison looks sweet for a spring session ale.
