Notes:

Originally inspired by the Mad Fermentationist's Hoppy French Saison. We use Citra hops at flameout and for dry hopping. We added coriander, grains of paradise, and fresh orange zest to increase the spicy citrus flavor. And we added a small amount of acidulated malt for mouth-watering drinkability.

Options:
Use Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison for the primary fermentation and add White Labs WLP650 Brettanomyces Bruxellensis in a secondary for a Citra Saison Brett.

Default Citra Saison


So, dumb question. You mention splitting a 10 at some point, but this recipe is a 5, right?


/Will always still be figuring it out/

Did you do a starter with the Wyeast 3711 French Saison, or just give it a smack?

We used a Wyeast smack pack. It worked well.

The recipe is for 5 gallons. We double it for a 10 gallon batch.

Not a dumb question - always good to clarify.

Default Updated hop schedule


We've simplified the hop schedule. As originally posted, the recipe called for a small amount of Saaz as a first wort hop (we had homegrown hops at the time) and a small amount of Columbus for bittering (we were a little short on IBUs).

The main post has been updated to show the new hop schedule.

We're brewing this updated recipe this weekend.

I will be doing something similar to this over the weekend, but will be adding some orange blossom honey to it and am using magnum hops for bittering along with the Martin House brewing house strain of saison yeast which runs about 90% attenuation. I may mash at a lower temp to let it dry out more and let the honey be the sweetness. Still deciding. I think I have 1 lb of wheat in mine, but otherwise similar grain bill.
