Looks good to me too. It will be a strong one given 3711's 90% attenuation. Small suggestion...
maybe replace 5-8% of your grain bill with table sugar to increase perceived dryness. 3711

Well my 3724 wheat beer has been in primary for 28 days and I'm still only at 83% attenuation
(1.043-1.007). Its a bit of a p.i.t.a. I did include 8% oats in the grist but I would have

I've left a batch cooling post-boil on the basement floor overnight to get it down a few more

I've never had a saison in my life but grabbed a smack pack of 3711 at the lhbs and made what I

Posted in thread: Question on Chilling with an Immersion Chiller on 08-20-2016 at 05:04 PM
I have an above ground water supply for the next few weeks due to utility upgrades on my
