Do the whole lot with saaz, it will ferment dry so 14% aa is not necessary & do a 4 - 6 oz dry hop. I put 4 oz of oats in mine and left it at 4 degrease celsius @ 12 PSI for 2 months before pouring the first pint and I am yet to taste a better saison! Good luck

Thanks. Keep in mind, I'm looking for a non-traditional Saison. I'm looking for something fairly bitter and Magnum offers a nice clean bitterness that I'm hoping will allow the other hops and yeast to shine. I considered dry hopping but I'm not wanting to completely mask the yeast character.

Default Sugar during boil or fermentation?

Resurrecting this thread to ask about the sugar addition. The sugar only accounts for just under 8% of the total fermentables bill but I'm curious if I should go through the trouble of adding it during fermentation as opposed to the boil. I've read this will help ensure a dry finishing beer when sugar makes up a large percentage of a fermentable bill (e.g. Tripel and Golden Strong Ales). Thanks!
