Default Saison recipe??

I'm looking to brew up a quick Saison so I can use the yeast cake for the 10-10-10 BGSA. Anyone have a favorite recipe? I'm not looking for something too out there, just a good solid 5G AG recipe.

I plan on using some Breiss Pilsner malt and some White Labs Belgian Yeast (not sure of the strain off the top of my head).

Typically you want to mash at mostly lower temperatures to maximize the amount of fermentable sugars and improve attenuation.

According to Farmhouse Ales the typical mash schedule is a protein rest at around 113F for 30 minutes, then a step at 131F for 15 minutes, then a saccharification rest at 144F for 30 minutes, and a 15 minute dextrine rest at 154F before mashing out.

Are you using the Saison yeast for the 101010? A saison is not a saison without a saison yeast.

The 101010 is a golden strong, which has a much different yeast.

I was under the impression that they both used a similar yeast. I will check and see what I have at home at lunch.

Only in that they are beers of Belgian origin using a Belgian yeast strain employing similar grists - but that is where the similarities stop. Saison yeast strains are entirely different animals from other Belgian strains.

What I got was a WLP400, which I think I was planning on using for a Witbier. After reading the White Labs site, I think I'll be getting a different yeast for the Saison, and the BGSA both.

But I have to use that yeast cause the expiration is coming up fast. I will probably brew up a 1/2 batch of Wit just to get back in practice. Maybe start the starter tonight and brew it this weekend.

LOL! I just read the details of your recipe, and I think I can say with confidence that there is no way I could measure my hops that accurately!
