I want to brew a saison. Here is what I am thinking. I would love feedback. I am looking for lower abv, clean and dry. A lighter saison. I had Green Flash Saison Diego and thought it was incredible. I also really liked Epic's Green apple saison. Those are pretty different but indicate my palate. There are some saisons that are wayyy too belgian for me.
11 Gallon Batch, Pre-boil 12.45, 75% Total Efficiency
EST FG 1.012 (but probably lower)
18# Belg Pils
2# White wheat
2 oz Mt Hood(4.9%) @ 60 [17.2IBU]
2 oz Santiam(6.6%) @ 5 [4.6IBU]
WLP565 w/stirred starter
Pitch @ 70*f and ramp to 80+
Keg and Force Carb
I am also doing a 90 minute boil since it has some pils in it. Depending how it turns out I will adjust ABV. Probably down, but we will see. I am guessing that with good yeast health and warm temps I'll do better than 1.012. Also, I chose those hops because I have a pound of each and the rest of what I have is more along the West Coast IPA vain. The image below will show you what I have to work with for hops. When I input the last shipment I adjusted the AA to reflect what I have.
