Wyeast 3711 French Saison is very happy fermenting in the 65-75 degree range.

Sounds good, i will do some research on the 3711 yeast. Maybe start at lower temps then step it up?

If you can, attach a blow-off. Better than coming home to a missing airlock and beer on your ceiling.

I have my wort in a glass carboy, so I need tubing to fit the smaller diameter opening with the plug in? I will have to read the how-tos on it. I got a little carried away at the LHBS with my ingredients. Beer calculator said 1.081. I did not siphon sample for hydrometer reading. I guess i need a baster i can sanitize.

I usually use a carboy cap, but if you use this type of airlock

you can find tubing big enough to fit onto the center stem, then once you're done blowing off, remove the tubing, assemble/fill the airlock, and you're good to go.

Go for a Belgian Double or 2xIPA, either would be "a nice pair"... Biermuncher has a recipe called "Tits Up" IPA I believe.

Ok, so wort started bubbling through airlock. Tubing attached to air lock and now blow-off working into jug. Air-lock is a mess though. I was already low on volume. this is going to be a potent brew. I might research adding water with sugar at bottling.

UPDATE:
I brewed on November 26th. (wyeast 3711) I have been able to keep the temps between 73-78 F, after initial crazy fermentation the first week. I would like to keep in primary another week or until it is done. Was going to check gravity next week, still fermenting. About 3 bubbles per minute, if that means much. Should i keep temps steady, let drop or heat up? Thinking of bottling next weekend, if ready.

if you're using a glass carboy, you can get a 1-1/4" OD tube (1" ID) that fits directly into the neck. pic: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f85/my-s...3/#post3723673 (scroll down a bit). has the advantage of never getting clogged since it's so big/wide.

mid-70's is a perfect temp for this yeast, i'd keep it there until it's finished. it keeps going for a while, it's not a fast finisher. i'd plan on 2.5-3 weeks in primary before taking a gravity reading. the warmth will help things finish up faster so don't cool if you're trying to finish up quickly.

p.s. based on my limited exposure (!) to "girls gone wild" videos, shouldn't this beer be called "bra lifter"?
