Very cool recipe. I want to try and hone in my saison 3711 recipe. I like the idea of accenting

wondering, I hop...

Alright, update, it formed a foam on top that was a little off colored. Usually I get a nice

So, I was pitching a vial of white labs yeast into my starter and it kinda had a pressurized
