** When this beer opens it explodes pretty quickly, so we needed to pour it immediately into a cup. This beer was entered into the National Organic Homebrew Challenge and got terrible feedback. It was actually just the Saison Partial Mash kit from Seven Bridges with 5 pounds of mom’s peaches added in – feedback was recorded in notes from the competition. It is recommended to continue to ferment for longer, even if the airlock stops bubbling, this is why it foams so much, which causes the particles at the bottom of the bottle to mix into the beer resulting in an “off” flavor. I still loved this beer and enjoyed it quite a bit.
