"The closer" saison was created by Johnson
I have brewed this twice now and its my favourite beer both commercial and home brewed. I thought this might Just be my taste buds but had it judged at my brew club and got a great score of 41 out of 50 from experienced brewers and judges i can't recommend it highly enough if you like the style you will love it.

Hi Gash,i did your Choc Vanilla stout recipe. I added 2 vanilla beans in the boil and nothing later. Tasted it yesterday and it was more coffee flavour than choc and no hint of vanilla. what should i do. should i add 50g on Vanilla ext in the keg?

Note to self for brew day tomorrow. Plug phone into the power so that one hour doesnt turn into 1.5 hours. :O

Gash - Tue 8 Oct - 07:38

It takes about 10 days with a good yeast pitch, but you can use Kveik yeast and ferment at 35c if possible and have it done in under 7 days. Cheers!
