    I would definitely make a starter, you always want healthy yeast. Then, ferment 68 ramped to 80
    over the course of a week. You'll get more of the profile that you are looking for. I fermented
    low my f...

    I would leave the corn sugar out if your intentions for its use is to dry it out. 3711 will
    tear through the grain without it. Expect around fg of 1006 or lower too. Grain bill looks
    nice. I've made 7...

    I say to cut those malts down to open up more opportunity for the hops to shine. I'd at least
    cut out the aromatic if you want the hop character to take center stage.

    Your not worried about that Quad's yeast effecting the Saison? And I may be going out on a limb
    here but I don't see Saison and bourbon pairing too well, could be wrong though.

    Do away with the aromatic malt, and if your looking for a big hop aroma and flavor your going
    to want to add a lot of hops at the 20, 10, flameout additions.My advice: drop the aromatic
    malt and cut t...

    Everything looks good, except what is the purpose of the wheat grain? And the NZ hops are a
    killer combination in a saison recipe, I'd just add a little more of those hops to the flameout
    addition. Ma...
