Homebrew: Strawberry & Lemon Wheat Fields

I ran out of beer to drink.   I discovered that my Saisons taste way better with acid malt in.   I remembered how good Tooti Fruiti (a sour, lemon & lime zest beer) tasted.   I also found loads of dried strawberries (containing no sulphites) massively discounted in a shop.   I put all these things together & a Berliner wiesse was formulated with half the brew being made with Strawberries & half with lemon.

Homebrew: Divine Fallacy

A year ago I brewed a really tasty Saison from pale malt, wheat malt, acid malt & honey called Quorum Sensing.   I noted that I must brew something similar again, so I have. This time I've upped the hop additions & used a powerful flavoured one too - Chinook.  It might be more IPA, but Saison style guidelines are notoriously lax.

Mash: 1 hour 10 mins.   Starting at 69°C & falling to 63°C after 30 mins, then held there for the remaining time to produce a drier beer.
