Interesting. I may go the route of starting with the wlp500 and adding the Saison yeast later
in the fermentation then. Maybe ferment the wort with wlp500, rack the beer, then add the candi
sugar and ...

I'm planning on brewing a Belgian golden ale and was thinking of combining wlp500 (Trappist)

Unfortunately, I don't even know where to start. I've never been a huge fan of wheat beers, so

I brewed an oatmeal milk stout in January and it turned out quite well. However, it was an
