Plan for a ferment anywhere from 4 days to 2 months.
Expect a beer with some fruitiness and funkiness.

It really depends on your recipe, yeast, and fermentation schedule/temperature. If you give a little more info we can give some advice if you're interested.

A lot depends on the recipe and the yeast you use.

Let us know that and we can give some advice.

1.050 OG, WLP566, 100 billion cells in 4 to 5 gallons, 78 degrees in a water bath.

I like it, and it's one of my wife's favorites.

The grain bill sounds fine. Are you thinking of adding rosemary and cherries?

I'm curious about that yeast and will be very interested in hearing how it turns out.

I absolutely love the french saison yeast from wyeast(3711). Very awesome yeast. I would recommend some carapils to the grain bill, but thats just me.

One of my favorite recipes is my saison(a 7.5% abv saison with carapils, 2 row, munich and wheat/New Zealand hops).

3711..... I'll definitely keep that in mind for next one, and look into carapillis.........

as far as the flavors I plan on boiling the rosemary @ initial boil. thought about using fresh cherries but couldnt decide to use it during mash or primary....... So im stickin to extract for a secondary..........

Some people like a dirty farm house taste in their Saision. If you like that then fresh fruit might be okay. Personally I think using extract is wise. You might even consider waiting until bottling to add it. You could even bottle half of the batch and then add the extract so you have a split batch. Again another personal preference, I like to have a variety of beers in my fridge.
