Default 1st crack at a saison

Any issues with this recipe? I took examples of a few I saw on HBT and came up with this for a 5 gallon batch...

6 lbs 2Row
1.5 lbs white wheat malt
.5 lb honey malt
.25 lb carapils
.25 lb aromatic
1 lb Honey (steeped, see below)

Mash at 152F for 60m

1 oz E.K. Golding (60m)
.5 oz Hallertauer (40m)
.5 oz Hallertauer (10m)
.25 oz cracked black pepper (5m)
1 orange of zest (5m)

Honey added just before flameout and allowed to steep for 15 min with lid on.

Primary for about 2 weeks
carbonate in keg for about 1 week.

Wouldn't use honey in a Saison. Use white sugar if you want to dry it out.

I'd mash closer to 145 ish as well. Also add any sugar after high krausen to help dry it out.

I'd drop the spices and let the yeast do that for you, but that's me.

What yeast are you using?

On edit: I was unclear. The question was meant for the OP.

2 weeks in primary is not nearly enough time to ferment out a Saison. Mine using wyeast Belgian saision takes about 5 weeks. No need to rack a brew like this either, after that long the yeast cake settles like a rock.

Good advise. I have never attempted this style before nor have i ever added sugar to the fermenter. Anything I should know about that process? Im assuming Ill bring the sugar to boil first? Is there a formula to determine a sugar amount to dryness ratio?

I use one lb of sugar in mine (5 gallon batch) and I dissolve it in 6 or 8 ounces of water that I've brought to a boil and then immediately cool once it's all dissolved in (the water is clear) then pour it right in. With 3711, I wouldn't do more than that. That yeast drys it out well anyway, especially if you mash low.
