Taking part in the Marchfest Brew Zone demonstrations
I brewed this at the Marchfest Nelson Beer Festival where I was one of twelve brewers brewing up a batch of beer in the Brew Zone brewing demonstration area. What a great day out that was! I really enjoyed chatting and sharing my knowledge with the people interested in home brewing.
The Waimea hops were assigned to me at random as the theme of this Marchfest was a random hops draw. We had the range of Mangrove Jacks dried yeasts to choose from. I picked M27, a Belgian Ale/Saison yeast strain, since I figured we’d be dealing with warmer temperatures and lacked a temperature controled enviornment for the beer’s first night. So that lead to me trying out the Saison style for the first time. This style ferments out to a very low gravity – some sugar is included in the ingredients to assist with that goal and fermenting temperature is very warm (from high 20s up to 32C).
