What makes it a winter saison? I guess a little bit of midnight wheat for color. I Steeped the midnight wheat in a bag for about 5 minutes while it was coming up to a boil, just to get a little more color and maybe the slightest roast taste. Didn’t love how this worked. Too much crap came out of the bag, next time just add to mash right before sparge. I didn’t do this because I was making a second runnings beer out of this.
I used the strain I harvested from a Tire Hands Saison, that I love (final pH of 3.73, I’m not sure what’s in the strain, but it definitely has some type of bacteria).
This beer was fantastic.
