Default Please critique this Saison recipe

Hi all,
I've got a bunch of wit yeast left over and thought about using it in a saison. I know it's not the typical yeast, but I have it and need to use it and want something different than a wit. Anyway take a look and let me know your thoughts.
thanks

Its not really going to be a saision without a saison yeast, but you should get some spicy flavors from the added grains of paradise. Give it a shot, recipe looks good.

Yeah, the yeast isn't quite right, but I figure if I let it ferment rather high I should get some fruity phenols from the wit yeast which the style calls for.

Not sure about the Special B in there. Just looking for some complexity? The flaked is also non-traditional I think. Can't argue with the GoP, I just used them in my saison. I guess you're not going for a traditional saison with the wit yeast, so the grain bill doesn't need to be so traditional either. I think it will be great beer. My recipe was just pils, munich, and wheat. Mash loooowwww, and ramp up the ferm temp <-Jamil's advice, not just my own.
