Iíve broken just about every rule of brewing and knock on wood, I havenít had a problem yet. Iím about to break another one.

I have a Grissette that has been in the primary for 3 weeks. I want to use the cake to ferment a Super Saison, but it looks like I canít brew for another week.

How long have you guys left beer on a primary cake without off flavors?

I have exceeded three months in the primary without any problems.

I thought the Mustang Ranch was out of business years ago. Has it been revived?

I have left batches on the primary cake for over a couple months and have had no problems.

Just to make sure, you could rack the beer (assuming you have another fermenter) and save the yeast in the fridge, or cool the beer way down just to slow all the processes down.

I racked a biere de garde too early from a primary to a secondary in April, it was fermenting actively at 58-62įF in my basement until a month ago. Its still in the same secondary, I have just been too lazy to rack it to a tertiary. I'm not too worried, though.

I never heard of Grissette, either, until I bought the Farmhouse Ales book this summer. Some sort of a saison, I recall.

Grissette or ďGray LadyĒ named after the grey uniformed women who served it is a Saison that was served to the miners who worked the mines of northern France.

Sadly, the Mustang Ranch was padlocked in August of 1999. Damn Revenuers. It was the only brothel I could think of that people would know what I was talking about
