I have started cracking open the saison now. I dare say the choice to referment in the bottle and carb it like a champagne fits perfectly.

The beer itself finished quite dry. And with it being only about 4.5% normal carbonation would not have given it quite enough body. The higher level of carbonation gives it a bit more bite and a more pleasing effervescence that fits perfectly.

In other news, I will be taking the cider to secondary tomorrow. I am thinking that I will most likely hit it with oak at the same time and then let it sit on oak for 3 to 4 weeks. Wow, too much to drink, too little time.

I believe I will now finish this pint…
