Re: Saison blending
This beer will super attenuate but to what degree is anyone's guess.
Here's the math
.5 oz sugar/ 1 gal of beer = 1 volume CO2
.5 oz = .03125 lbs * 40pts/lb = 1.25 pts = 1.00125
This does not account for any carbonation that is already in solution this just shows you once the beer is sealed (bottle or keg) that every 1.25 pt drop will give you an extra volume of CO2.
You can see how you don't need to drop the gravity much for a lot of carbonation.
I doubt you will need any sugar, but who knows how long it will take to carbonate. Plus you have the unknown that other microbes that don't produce CO2 will eat the remaining sugar.
If you want to try this then you best bet is to bottle in Champagne bottles and taste a bottle every month. When the carbonation is right then put in the fridge. But this could still result in bottle bombs.
