Primed with beet sugar and bottle conditioned for 2 weeks.
The sugar added was mostly to be sure to hit my FG and it was spot on at 1.012, though it gave the beer a bit of a triple character. Tastes almost like a mix of S.Dupont and Delirium Tremens... Beer turned out really great though, waaay beyond my expectations!
Just had to add this as I feel that most of the Saison recipes here are more experimental ones or American interpretations of the style. If I did this one all grain, I would cut back on or completely remove the sugar (maybe lower the OG a bit as well) and do a long mash at low temps to make it dry out. And the key to getting a beer right with this yeast is patience, patience, high temps and more patience! Also, a little rousing may be nice every once in a while. And don't skip the starter!!!
