Bogues Beauregarde is a beer that may end up in our Brazen series, depending on how it works out.  The recipe its self is a pretty standard saison, dried out with some sugar and some brown sugar.  What makes it “brazen” is the fact that it is brewed using both a standard, Belgian saison yeas in addition to yeast that I cultured from the skins of blueberries.

Had a few setbacks today… I (Ryan) brewed this one by myself so there were some issues that come with no second person for quality control.  I lost a little of the first runnings to an open valve (“Why is my foot hot… shit!”) and lost a little bit in the transfer to the fermenter just because it’s tough to move a pot that big by yourself, even if you are only brewing 3 gallons.

A beautiful day to brew.

This little guy showed up to help, but he wasn't able to really lift much.  Mostly he just hung out and didn't really do much.  Slacker.

I was happy to get it done, and I was really happy to see some vigorous fermentation in less than 2 hours from the finish!  The fermenter is bubbling away right now, and I can’t wait to find out how Bogues Beauregarde ends up.

Hops go in...

Hopefully this weekend, BBxB will be brewing Monogamy, our single hop IPA for our standard series.  Until then, here’s a video of the yeast burping.  Cheers!
