My belgian saison comes in at 1.078 and drops to about 1.005 with 3711. No steeping grains, 25-30 Ibus. I use a combo of white and brown sugar to boost the gravity. I have made it a number of times with big new world hops--usually a combo of Galaxy+Nelson Sauvin and most recently with only Amarillo. But really, use what you can find up in AK. This time I tried the Belle Saison Danstar yeast--very similar (but doesn't seem to drop on its own like 3711). 3787 would make a different beer. Oh, and I only do a 30 minute min boil. It is incredibly quick to brew, takes about 3-4 weeks, bottle, adrinkable and usually goes very quickly to friends and neighbors.

If you are trying to do it on a budget, you may want to consider hops in bulk, propagating yeast, etc.

White granulated sugar from the grocery store. Cheap and effective.
