Saison de Truite Update

The brett batch was fermenting away when I got home from work last night.  It has a much different smell than other beers I have brewed.  Less sweet more earthy.  You can smell it in the basement, but not upstairs.  I closed the door and turned on the fan so it should be ok.

I messed up a bit in splitting out the batches.  I measured out how much I put in the brett batch last night. They are new buckets and I neglected to figure out how much volume they held, i guessed 3.  They are 5.  So, I now have 4 gallons of brett beer and 8.5 gallons of the Saison.  Im not sure how the brett is going to turn out but right now I cant see adding more than .5 – 1 gallon to 5 gallons of Saison.  That would leave me with about 4 gallons of Saison and 3 gallons of Brett.  That second batch may be mixed 50/50 and I can bottle the rest I suppose.  Bottom line is that second batch may be supa funky.  I guess thats what experimental beers are all about.

Here is the label I have been working on for it. Still needs a bit of tweaking, but I like it.

    Brian, that is one awesome label. Did you make it yourself? I love that black background and then the trout on the line. Perfect.

    That label is great. It makes me want to retire.

    So did you build it? because if so… we really need to talk about my website.
