After tasting more of Stillwater and the variations and creativity of Tired Hands with the same/very similar yeast, the old Odonata brew has renewed appeal for its relatively stark simplicity.

At the same time, it has less of a "premium" appeal because of this same simplicity.

I hope increased volume will allow the beer to be more cost competitive, thereís a move to make a lower alcohol, Avril type version that I can buy by the 5 gallon keg, or there are some other fancy variants using the same yeast planned for the farmhouse line.

That all sounds good to me.

A separate line is planned for Rories and other non-farmhouse brews.




Thereís more to a beer than recipe. Iíd assume you already knew that. Itís hard enough to reproduce the same beer on a homebrew setup for consistency, much less moving to an entirely new kit, new brewer...

Iím a bit single minded about that yeast. One of the cleanest Wyeast 3724 brews available. Peter tried to be very true, an homage to the inspiring beer.


Iíve not heard a whole lot about what went down and I never cared to dig for more. Personal, familial issues of brewers are not my game. I did hear there were definitely two sides to the story.

I guess it may be time to pull that final bottle of the first batch Odonata Saison from the cellar to see how it aged even thought it is in the bottle, not in wine barrels in "perfect Wine Cellar" conditions.

According to that article, this is just bottles that have been aged the whole time in a wine cellar, not in barrels. This will be the same exact beer as before, just old.

I kept hearing from friends that the Odonata Saison was appearing in stores every once in a while in the Sacramento Davis areas so that is probably exactly it!
