Saison Figolla

Continuing our newish tradition of creating a thank you beer for the judges of our Mayfaire competition - this year the club decided to make a Saison with a "Maltese" twist. This beer is based on an Easter Maltese dessert called figolla - a buttery citrus infused cake/cookie filled with marzipan. To make this Saison we're starting with a basic grain bill with a little "baked crust" of the biscuit. The aroma is boosted with the zest of lemon and Moro Blood Oranges (closer to an Italian/Maltese orange). We'll be adding almonds - details to follow! We're also happy to have some fun with this one and we'll be canning it via the Beer Monks Mobile Canning crew here in SoCal. (http://beermonks-socal.com/)

Saison for the Bee Keepers

This is more of a story about the brewing of a beer than anything else. My original brew partner (Daniel) has had two children since we first started brewing five years ago, so we rarely get to brew together. This was a rare event to be able to brew alone like we used to. The brew day started off perfectly, the weather was warm and there bees were flying around. We decided to brew a Saison for the fall to capture the perfect warm fall day. We were mashed in and were cleaning as we went, when Daniel suddenly screamed and found a bee up his pant leg. The bee stung him and I laughed as I asked if he was allergic. He said he wasn't but that all changed quickly... Fifteen minutes later he turned to me with his face swollen to twice the normal size. He quickly headed over to the drug store for Benadryl. He returned a few minutes later with the pills and took a few, chasing them with a little beer. All seemed fine until he fell out of his chair onto the floor nearly unconscious. After calling his wife, my girlfriend, and a doctor, we headed over to the ER, but not before I stopped recurring the wort and set up to mash out. After a short wait in the waiting room and 2 hours with a doctor, we found out Daniel had developed a deadly Bee allergy. After a life time of being a hobbyist bee keeper he had lost all resistance to bee stings. After the ER and a day of panic we returned back to my house to finish the beer. To always remember his near death experience, we added the dead bee to the mash-out and a small amount of honey to the wort.

Little Ghost Saison

This was the "starter" Saison that I brewed to generate my yeast cakes for the "Big Ghost". Don't discount this little guy, he's a keeper.

Saison Guacamole

This was another of the giant collection of "California Saisons" that I made for my 2011 AHA talk and Club Night. Awesomely weird and inspired by the Avocado trees in my backyard. I know this sounds strange, but it really works!

Big Ghost Saison

This is a big bold bugger of a Super Saison. Inspired by the idea generating factory of Fantome and using a culture of their strain grown in a batch of a smaller beer. This was a big hit at the 2011 AHA Conference.
