Elderflower saison


Another beer I squeezed in over the summer was a Elderflower saison, this was brewed late june and I added 30g of elderflowers to the fermentor and left them there for five day before removing and bottling.

The elderflowers worked really well with the Nelson Sauvin hop and the rye malt and created a great refreshing summer beer.
