A few comments:

Boulevard's Website states they use Simcoe, Magnum, and Amarillo.
I used other citrus/floral hops because that's what I had in my refrigerator.
It has also been suggested to increase the % of corn and reduce the percentage of Wheat in the grain bill

Alternate Option for Yeast - French Saison

Hops suggestions (taken from Head Brewmaster at Boulevard) -

Bitter - Magnum
Flavor - Touch of Simcoe
Finish - Amarillo
Dry Hop - 1 ounce Amarillo

I had this brew for the first time today, and must say I was very happy with it. Very much worth giving it a try. Essentially the only Farmhouse ale/saison type beer I can find in stores around here.

Looks tasty. Amarillo is my favorite American hop for a saison, and I know Boulevard uses a fair amount of them. Have you tried the Saison Brett? I've cloned that one with good success.

I have not tried the Saison Brett but I've heard much about it.
Do you mind sending me the recipe via PM or posting it here?
I'm planning a brew day for this weekend and may give this one a try.

I had planned for a Cream ale but maybe i'll just do both!

Thanks,

I was very pleased with the WLP 670 and I may even pick up another or harvest the yeast from the Tank 7 batch.

I got great fermentation out of it during the first 72 hours for a higher ABV beer.

I went and checked on it last night and 15 days later it's still bubbling every now and then. My last Gravity Reading was 1.020, raising the ABV to about 7.5%.

Well, I just used a standard saison recipe, and pitched dregs from a Saison Brett in primary along with Wyeast 3724. If you can't get the actual Saison Brett, I bet you could get a good result with the recipe you have above, pitching 3724 to start and pitching a Wyeast Brett C. a couple days later.

Wow!!! I just took a sample after 3 weeks in the primary. The 3rd week was dry hopped with 1 ounce Amarillo Loose Leaf. It's very nice and flavorful. The American Farmhouse Yeast has done a fantastic job. OG was 1.077, FG reading was 1.013 with temperature adjustment for 8.37% ABV. I'm gonna let it dry hop one more week before bottling. For those considering trying this recipe, I definitely recommend it. I've got a Tank House 7 sitting next to it and sampling both. I must say it's remarkably similiar. I didn't expect much since I made the recipe up myself from scratch but so far so good. I've still got a bit of cloudiness in mine when comparing the srm but I also just transferred so i'm sure it would settle out if a left it sit for a day or two.

My first clone attempt was Bloulevard American Wheat. This one I was off a bit because I think the WLP320 American Hefeweisen wasn't the correct yeast choice. I think I should have used the chico strain to get the pale golden, less wit flavor. This one turned out too much like a belgian wit. I will be trying to brew this a 2nd time since the first one is all gone. I will use the US-05 or WLP001 to see how it does.

I have a photo comparing the two but don't know how to attach it.

Just picked up a bottle of tank 7, planning on trying it tomorrow. If I like it I'll be cloning it as well.
