I brewed an all-grain conversion of this on Sep 2nd. Today I needed space in my _fermentator_ (I love that video) so I had to move it to a secondary Better Bottle. I didn't taste it, but there was...

I'm going to brew an all-grain version of this tomorrow. I'm assuming the Fuggles is all for aroma. This should make it a slightly malty instead of on the rather hoppy side.

Seconded. The longer you keep it together in the fermenter or secondary, the better. It conditions much faster in a larger container, despite it not looking like much is coming out of the airlock....

I second what TimTrone wrote. However, if you need to rack to a secondary to free up your fermenter, not a big deal.

Saison strains are usually pretty aggressive with high attenuation. That will dry out the Amber Wheat quite a bit, but hey, it may turn out to be a flavor/taste that you love!
