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.
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.
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!
