More Sah'Tea

My second attempt at a Sah'Tea clone turned our pretty good, and I thought I do some minor tweaks and try it again.  My wife has really gotten into the ginger saison (she really likes that one!), and I have a hefeweizen and big Belgian that will be ready soon.

Interestingly, I used Clarity Firm with the Belgian, which makes it GR, or gluten-reduced.  So far, there doesn't seem to have been any effect on the flavor of the beer when I've used the Clarity Firm.

Brew Day: 11 Aug 2016

Partial Mash:
10 oz Munich malt
6 oz rye
2 oz flaked wheat

Boil (60 min):
1 lb Pilsen DME
4 oz table sugar (@ 60 min)
7 g German Hallertau (AA: 3.1%) (@ 60 min)

12 g crushed juniper berries + 2 black tea bags (@ 10 min)

Yeast: Safale K-97, 1/2 vial Clarity Firm

*I followed all of my usual procedures for partial mashing, as well as cooling the wort and pitching the yeast.

Addendum, 13 Aug: Fermentation is going really well; so well, I had to swap out the blow-off bottle for a clean one this morning.
