Pilot Brew for Tierra de Perros, Thirsty Dog Project

Brewing the pilot batch for an herb infused Saison that will be brewed by Tierra de Perros, cerveza artesanal. Here's the official description for the project:

Concept Description: A light colored, medium-light bodied beer, in the style Belgian Saison, incorporating the influence of spices and aromatics grown on or associated with the Canary Islands.
Subjective Target: Unique and refreshing beer with enough complexity to be enjoyed in all seasons, and particularly appropriate for warm weather, and/or as an accompaniment to food.

So, enough chit-chat. Let's get to the photos. From the brewday five days ago, until this morning.
