Yeah, I guess you are right...how do we ramp up carbonation and avoid blowing up all over my fridge?

I carbed my saison at 1oz/gallon and it came out nice and sparkly.

If you are kegging just up the PSI. If you are bottling, you would just need to add more priming sugar.

For a saison you want 3-3.5 volumes of CO2. I would go with about 5.5 oz of corn sugar just to be on the safe side. Don't go too high or, like you say, you will get bottle bombs.

What yeast did you use for a Saison? My favorite yeast right now is the French Saison limited edition

You can drink that very early and I never had any meaty flavor on mine. Mine always come out citrusy, more grapefruit than orange as with Belgian Wit.

Brew on my friend
However, We've never brewed a saison, so, ignore me.
I was gonna comment, but just doing a repost will suffice this one I believe.
