|Brett Saison w/ Chamomile
Ingredients: Water, Pilsner, Wheat, Spelt, Oats, Buckwheat Malts, Southern Cross, Idaho 7, Ella Hops, Spooky Saison Brett B Yeast, Chamomile.
We had brewed some brett saison awhile back that we were holding onto to see how it matured over time. The brett began to take over and it developed a nice spicy/funky farmhouse quality and finished quite dry. We thought adding a floral component to it would enhance its drinkability and make it a little more approachable. I’ve been wanting to use chamomile for a while as I’ve found it quite pleasant in witbiers and farmhouse ales. We steeped 3lbs of chamomile flowers and added it back to the finished brett saison. The results are a dry, spicy saison with aromas of funk, honey and chamomile. It’s quite drinkable and would be a great accompaniment to white fish, mussels or a fresh green salad.
