Looking for a refreshing summer beer that’s perfect all year long? Our Saison is the beer for you! Strong, fruity, spicy, and with a refreshing amount of carbonation and acidity, this brew benefits from it’s higher than average fermentation temperature and yeast additions. You’re going to need a starter, or two packages Belgian Saison yeast to fully ferment, but you’ll be glad you did when you pop open this quaffable thirst quencher on a hot summer day. Saison is the French word for awesome... or season. It’s one or the other. Maybe it’s both?
No more lollygaggin'. If you’re looking for a new beer or a tried and true kit this brew is for you.
Note: There should be a 90 minute boil for this beer, due to the high percentage of pilsner malt, so boil volume should be adjusted accordingly. Hops additions still start at 60 minutes.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

I have high hopes I have kept it within the temp range and it is steady I aerated properly and I'm looking forward to it all is going well however can not attest to taste but I did hit target OG
A big hit at my birthday party. Very refreshing during summer months and easy to brew with required warm fermentation temps. Mine had a somewhat short shelf life peaking after just a few weeks but developing slight off flavors (strong alcohol flavors) maybe 3 weeks later. I would brew again.
