This poor neglected blog. I just haven't had the right time slot (or money) to brew much in the last couple months. I'm spending too much money on commercial beer I guess, but there's so much out there right now and going out is so much more fun than staying home and drinking homebrew.
The last beer I brewed was a French Saison that turned out pretty good. I have maybe half the batch left. It turned out a little fuller-bodied than I hoped. I'd like to try the recipe again without as much wheat or perhaps without wheat altogether. The grain bill included 12.5 percent flaked wheat, but I also used two pounds of wheat DME. Perhaps sticking to the flaked wheat next time might make the difference. The late hop character is also lacking. I would probably also dry hop with Sorachi Ace (the single hop I used) or at least add some at the end of the boil, instead of just a flavor addition at 15 minutes. Live and learn I guess. Still a decent beer and nothing horribly wrong with it.
