Feisty Farmhand Hoppy Saison on WLP585
I entered this in an upcoming contest on 10/20 & it has a few fans so I thought I'd post it.

UPDATE: This beer was split into 2 batches (one with a starter & one a direct pitch of the vial). I'm proud to report the starter side placed 2nd & the vial side placed 3rd (in Belgian & French Ale) in the recent Las Vegas SNAFU Memorial Competition.

14lb German Pils
2.25lb Franco-Belges Light Munich
1.5lb White Wheat
1.25lb Table sugar @5min left in boil

Mash Schedule: 146 for 40min, then 154 for 25min
Mash out at 170 for 15min

You don't mess around with dry hopping! Any changes you'd make after receiving your score sheets?

Nothing that I can think of. The judges gave the side with a starter 40 & 42 and 2 different judges gave the side without a starter 34 & 35. The only notes on improvement were there might've been a little alcohol heat & I didn't get the labels removed from the bottles well enough. lol
