All Grain HomeBrew Pink Peppercorn Saison Recipe
Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Belgian Farmhouse Saison, flavored with pink peppercorns. The pink peppercorns add a light peppery flavor with some sweetness and fruitiness. They pair nicely with the spicy Belgian yeast and rye malt. The addition of flaked grains adds a creaminess to the beer’s mouthfeel.

1 lb Rye Malt
1/2 lb Flaked Wheat
1/2 lb Flaked Oats

1 oz. German Tettnang 4%a, 20 minutes
1/8 cup fresh crushed pink peppercorns
Dry-Spice: – 3 tablespoons of whole pink peppercorns in a hop mesh bag. If possible weight the bag with a sanitized stainless steel ball so it sinks into the beer.
