I did a 4.5 ish.
11 gal batch.
18 pilsner malt
2 Rye malt
1 Munich
1 crystal 30

Mashed at 150 for 70 minutes

Sparged at 170

7 oz home grown cascade leaf
2 FWH
2 @ 60
1 @ 30
1@ 10
1 @ Flameout


White labs 535 French saison 2 weeks at 80F

Started at 1.048

Finished at 1.002


Kegged and carbed at 11psi for 4 days.

This beer is light and refreshing
Peppery notes, a little lemony, not to hoppy, the fruitiness of the cascade is a good match.
Really drinkable. The saison yeast really shines through in this beer.
Best beer I've ever made? Maybe.

My favorite right now.

Next time a little darker , maybe 1.5 60l crystal and ? Not sure what else.

Great brew!

Brewed this with Wyeast French Saison and D-45 candidate syrup. Over carbed mine a little so it's ready at week two of bottle conditioning. I will probably brew this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
Mine went from 1.061 -> 1.002 over 3 weeks @ 64 -> 78 degrees (#3711 is a beast!). The rye is fantastic- slippery and very spicy brew. Hopefully we wont drink it up before it hits its prime!
