Mashed the wheat and acid malt, then strained the result through a sieve. This formed the basis of the boil. Extract was added to the boil along with extra hot water to aid in dissolving, then this was all strained into the fermenter and topped up to 20L. Yeast pitched immediately and the fermenter transferred to the hot water cupboard the next morning to provide the warmer temperatures favoured by the saison yeast.

2014-09-23: Racked onto 20g of sucrose to ensure oxygen elimination from the head space. Used a strainer to block large clumps of flocculated yeast that were floating on the surface. I’ve not seen this behaviour from a yeast before. Returned to the hot water cupboard.
