Stick and Bindle Saison
With a strainer bag of bitter orange peel tied to a stick and flung over his shoulder, the brewer of this recipe drifts casually toward the boiling kettle to infuse citrusy flavors in his stick-and-bindle to perfectly compliment the phenolic "bite" and ester profile of French Saison yeast.
