saison + dubbel

well, the brewing year has started its turn toward cooler temperatures, and we hadn't had a chance to use our saison yeast yet. with the temperature forecast looking a little warmer over the next few days, we decided it would be a good time to reprise last year's dirty ape saision [brewday blog], this time with different ops and a different yeast strain. the final result was dirty ape 2. if the weather cooperates we might even get another hot stretch and be able to use the yeast cake for another super saision...

looking ahead to our next brewday, we really wanted to bring back our very popular quad. last year we made our little monk dubbel [brewday blog] to generate a big yeast cake for it. this year we figured that would be a good idea to do again, so we brewed up another little monk.

this is one of those brewdays where we were busy and didn't really remember to take many pictures, but here they are anyway.

both beers done boiling. the one on the left was done boiling and ready to transfer, the one on the left was chilling.

another brewday done. the saison stayed in the garage to ferment in the warmer temperature and the dubbel went down to the basement.
