Belgian-Style Pale Ale - All Grain
Saison based on Boulevard's Spring Belle Saison
Spring Belle marries the crisp, spicy flavor of a traditional farmhouse ale, with its citrusy hop notes, to the fresh floral aromas of chamomile, rose petals and elderflower.

Infusion Step: Mash at 148 °F (64 °C) with 5 gal (18.93 L) of water for 90 minutes.
Recommended Sparge: 167 °F (75 °C)
Heat 2 cups of water to 205, cut heat for 60 seconds. Add 0.5oz lavender and 2oz of rose buds/petals for 15mins. Maintain heat around 205 for 10 minutes. I then poured the liquid into a pyrex measuring cup, collecting slightly over 1cup of liquid. Pitched liquid once cooled to room temp. The fermenter perked up that night.
Hold in primary fermentor for 6 days at 72 °F (22 °C).
Allow to carbonate and age for 7 days.
