Brewing Update

So a couple of us have gotten together the last few weeks and brewed some all grain beer. Tonight was my turn as Der Braumeister and I opted to make a saison. Dough-in to yeast pitch was 3:45, and my new mash tun worked really well. Our efficiency was a bit low, but I think that might be a result of the milling.
  • 8 lb 2-row pilsner malt
  • 1 lb aromatic
  • 1 lb extra light DME (boil)
  • 1 lb wheat DME (boil)
  • 1 lb honey (5 min boil)
  • Hersbrucker (1 oz @60 min; 0.75 oz @20 min; 0.25 oz @2 min)
  • 2 tsp coriander
  • WL Belgian ale pitched at 70°F
The O.G. was 1.050, which was just a bit lower than I wanted, but that was also because we had a little over 6 gallons, rather than 5.25.
