I normally add it to my starter, just because I want a good amount of funk in my beer. Regular beer yeast tends to dominate fermentation, so I find that throwing Brett from the start gives it a few...

My advice is keep it simple. Typically a Saison will have at least some portion of the grain bill as wheat. It's not necessary though (I use rye in my Saison instead of wheat). 1.015 would be a...
