---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2008 07:18:59 -0400 (EDT) From: "Darrell G. Leavitt" <leavitdg at plattsburgh.edu> Subject: Saison Voisin (yeast question) Does anyone know if the "Giants" Brewery (Basserie des Geants) bottles with another yeast, or is it the original saison yeast left in the bottle? I ask in that I just had one, and would like to grow those critters, if one can. Their Saison Voisin tastes quite nice to me. Darrell Return to table of contents

So we brewed a porter last weekend so we could try our hand at adding coffee to one keg. I did a coffee stout one time with 12 cups of strong coffee per 5 gallons. Memory says it was good, but I am not the best note taker after the beer ferments. Anyone have any recent experience? Her favorite beer at GABF was Java the Hut, and it did win gold. In talking to the brewer he takes fresh locally roasted coffee and cold steeps it for two days then adds to the already fermented beer. How much??? Would it work with a hazelnut coffee? Which brings me to hazelnut and beer. If the hazelnut coffee is a no go, how much hazelnut do you add to a beer? As I plan on doing it this weekend and HBD does not have the traffic it once did please send replies to me AND HBD. In the future I will try to reply to more questions. AJ and -S keep up the posting we are still reading! -S were you / are you still involved with Albany Pump Station? Glyn Southern Middle TN Return to table of contents

(http://www.drinkgoodstuff.com/). Both are a reasonable walk from lower Canal Street, and worth the walk. The Fisherman's line of beers are available around my area. I'd have to check to see if the pumpkin stout is currently available. Send me an email directly, and we can discuss the details of a beer swap.
