How much did the beer cost you ans how'd you let it naturally rise to 78

I originally ordered everything from brewmasters warehouse, the recipe is on there also, think it was around $32

I cooled to 65, pitched yeast and the yeast will make the temp come up, I put the heat belt on it for the last 2-3 days to bring to 80. It 8 days to come to final gravity, then I left it 2 more weeks to clear up.

Congrats on placing at the Dogfish comp.

I plan to steal your recipe, haha. I might cut out the spices/orange peel because this is going to be my all-grain debut and I'd like to focus on the grain flavors.

My question:

I won't be able to control fermentation temperature as well as you did. It's summer, so my room temperature will fluctuate between the 60s and 80s.

The literature says that saisons are known for stuck ferms. Do you think temperature shifts in this range would lead to problems?

Thanks!

If you cool your wort down to 60 then pitch your yeast the temp will naturally rise and you'll be fine. If you use the wyeast 3711 French saison yeast I highly doubt you will have a stuck fermentation, that yeast is a monster! Keep us posted on how things go with your batch.

I think this will be my first all-grain as well. I have brewed extract for six years so it is about time! I plan to basically just brew saisons all summer since i do not have a cellar.

That's my goal for summer brews, Belgians, saisons, and the fall lagers and pumpkins

Have you checked out the Mad Fermentationist's recipes for dark funky saisons? I am planning to make one or two of those but without the wild yeast.
