I'm drinking one I brewed on 08/19
1.065 SG - 1.004 FG
mashed at 147 for 75 minutes
90 minute boil
1oz (25 IBU) sorachi ace as FWH
1oz (13 IBU) sorachi ace at 20 min
pitched Wyeast 3724 at 70F, raised 3F a day to 90F, held there until 1.004

It's darn good, but a little young.
Maybe a little too much bitterness, I think the FWH would be better at 60 min. It is mellowing out rapidly, however, and will probably be epic in 3-4 weeks, if it lasts that long (I only made 10 gallons).

Thanks wolfman. Sounds good, here is my recipie:

Style: Saison
Batch size: 5.0 gal
Boil volume: 6.0 gal
OG: 1.076
Bitterness (IBU): 47.8
Color (SRM): 6.9
ABV: 7.5%

Grain/Sugars:

4.00 lb Pilsener (German), 36.4%
4.00 lb Light DME, 36.4%
1.00 lb Munich (German), 9.1%
1.00 lb Flaked Wheat, 9.1%
1.00 lb Cane Sugar, 9.1%

Hops:

0.50 oz Sorachi Ace (AA 12.6%, Pellet) 60 min, 19.2 IBU
0.50 oz Sorachi Ace (AA 12.6%, Pellet) 40 min, 16.9 IBU
0.50 oz Sorachi Ace (AA 12.6%, Pellet) 20 min, 11.7 IBU
0.50 oz Sorachi Ace (AA 12.6%, Pellet) 0 min, 0.0 IBU

I'll probably mash around 148 and do 30 min rest around 126. Also sugar goes in later in fermentation. Going to use Wyeast 3711 and ramp the temp like u suggested.

Id ditch the 40 min addition and use it to add to the 0min addition

I did one, it's on my blog. Use the link in my signature if you want to check it out (sorachi jade saison)

Meh, I'm not much of a fan of this hop. Lemon and dilll aren't my thing.

I also agree, ditch the 40 minute addition. If your beer needs more bitterness, make the 60 minute addition larger or FWH and use the rest of the 40 min addition at flameout.

I also would not do a protein rest. Even though you have unmalted wheat in there, the protein rest will also break down the proteins in everything else. You don't need to break down the flaked wheat, especially since you are adding sugar in the kettle to thin it out.
