Calypso's Ghost: Recipe

RETRO: Post written on November 13, 2014, but set to publish on the date of the original brew session to maintain order within the blog.

Brewed as I continued to focus more and more on saisons.  The name was based on the use of Calypso hops (my first time using them) and Wyeast's Biere de Garde yeast, which is supposedly from Fantôme.

The recipe for the full batch is as follows:

Batch Number: 42
Brew Date: June 23, 2012
Keg Date: August 14, 2012
Batch Size: 6 Gallon
OG: 1.052 (estimate)
FG: 1.002 (measured)
Fermentation Temperature: 65-70*F (room temperature throughout)
IBU: 31.0
ABV: 6.6%
SRM: 3.8

Mash: Single infusion at 150*F for 60 minutes

Boil: 60 minute


6lb 0oz Pilsner Malt
4lb 8oz Wheat Malt
0lb 12oz Rye, Flaked
0lb 12oz Wheat, Flaked

Salts & Water

At this point I wasn't doing anything besides filtering the water and adding 5.2 buffer, so that's probably it.


1.0oz Calypso (leaf, 12.8 AAU) at 30 minutes
1.0oz Calypso (leaf, 12.8 AAU) at flameout


Yeast Nutrient


Wyeast Biere de Garde (WY3725)


Later on when the keg was about halfway finished, I added raspberries and peaches and let those ferment out with Brett Trois and Brett Lambics.
