Another batch of Saison. I'm using the yeast cake I had left from the last batch of Saison. This is the Wyeast 3724. My last batch didn't attenuate completely. Apparently, this yeast likes high temperatures to attenuate. I am set up now to heat my carboy. What I didn't realize, and I guess I should have, is that the fermentation of the yeast actually causes the wort to heat up. I read an article that states that at 1.07 OG, the wort should rise about 8 degrees F above ambient temperature. Very interesting to me, as I'm seeing this happen, now that I have a thermometer in the carboy. It hit about 80 degrees, and the heater isn't even on. :beer4

I have my first porter bubbling right now. I'm looking forward to tasting it.

Tripel brewed at Learn to Homebrew Saturday. Explosive fermentation after 8 hours (thanks for the yeast food Hendo brewing) Spitting the batch in half after initial fermentation dies down and adding a couple of pounds of cranberries to half for my Christmas beer this year.
