i was actually aiming for 1.013 - got 1.012...didn't want it too dry or too high ABV...will probably give it another week until i bottle...but maybe i'll just give it 4 weeks as well...

I let all my saisons sit for a month before kegging/bottling. It will continue to ferment. Those saison yeasts are meant to take the gravity down pretty low.

So far mines gone like this :
SG : 1.055
1 week : 1.012
2 weeks :1.010

Seems to be following a typical pattern posted by others - drops slowly and needs to be given time.

I found that you need to rouse the yeast as well as ramping up the temp to get it to finish up. Just my $0.02

Another weeks gone by :
SG : 1.055
1 week : 1.012
2 weeks :1.010
3 weeks : 1.004

Lets see what another week brings. I suspect it won't get much lower.

...just brewed a Saison (OG 1.065) this weekend. I pitched a little over a liter starter of [email protected] (which is around the ambient temperature in my house). After a couple of days of vigorous krausen, the temperature has climbed to ~76degF just from the activity of the yeast without temp control. No sign of slowing fermentation and temp still climbing naturally.
I'm hoping I get the yeast character I desire by letting the yeast warm naturally. Normally, I would restrict my ales to under 68degF. I guess I'll know in a few weeks how it went.

I havent had too much trouble with WLP565.
My current one fermented at 75-80, went from 1.060 to 1.006 in a week. Not sure if it'll drop much more. Kinda hope not, I like it where it is right now. We'll see. Past ones have done pretty much the same and never finished above 1.008.

Havent done this recipe, its based on Saison Buffoon (Radical Brewing - Randy Mosher) and very much looking forward to drinking it

looks like it's time to dig out the old saison recipe - my last attempt, referenced in this thread, eventually ended up being pretty darn close to the saison dupont...happiness

Doctor Duvel, I am also In Houston and I made a saison similar to Tank 7, It turned out amazing. Let me know if you would be interested in swapping a few bottles. This last Sunday I brewed a Honey Wheat for those hot Houston days to come!
