What's your FG? I always let it sit another 2-3 days after I've reached FG to clean up - diacetyl, sulfur, etc. Then I cold crash, also slowly - 2-3 days to get down to 2C. Keg and drink!

Thanks Nesto. I have not physically sampled it yet to avoid getting oxigen. According to Beerbug, I am sitting at 1.001 to 1.004. Activity stopped today (exactly 14 days). I will let it rest a couple of days and then start lowering the temperature to 2 C over 2 days. Thanks again.

Thanks Nesto for all your help. Temp is going down. I am now at 68 F heading for 2-4 C for a couple of days and then to the keg.

Nesto: This is a bomb. ABV 6.9%. It finished at 1.0078 (2 Brix by hygrometer). The Mash pre-boil was 1.042 and the OG was 1.061. Beautiful color and aromas. I just put it in the refrigerator to age at 38 F. Thanks for your assistance.

gonna attempt this, later this month. i notice talk of using champagne bottles? is that because they are stronger and this needs a high carbination level? if so what carbionation level should i be looking at?

IMO, you should try for about 3.0 volumes of CO2, which doesn't need the thicker bottle. Find what you like though. If you're about 3.5 vols of CO2 you should consider a more sturdy bottle.

ok cheers nesto - i guess the same would apply for wheat beers too. I currently use the grolsh type bottles, any idea what their limit is? about 3?

I did Nestos saison almost 2years ago. 10liters was then put into secondary and some brett from a couple of Orval bottles was introduced. This is 1.5years in the bottle. Bloody amazing.

Brewed his for the 4th time last week. The first three have been superb, thanks Nesto. This time I forgot the late hops :oops:

So , it has been fermenting for 8 days, down to 1010 now, should I dry hop to compensate for the missed hops? and if so how much ?
