I hope it turns out well, definitely report back with your tasting notes.

It's very cloudy still. I have it at about 81F and has been at that temp for maybe a now. Still very cloudy. Is this normal?

Actually, yes, I do recall my batch staying relatively cloudy as I ramped up the temps throughout fermentation.

I don't cold crash saisons, but that is my personal preference. Generally though, for any rustic beer with a decent percentage of wheat I would just say let it ride.

I find it interesting that the 3711 left enough residual sugar for an infection to take hold in the first place -- that stuff is a beast!

Actually now im not sure if it trly is an infection. This morning i checked it and i notciced white bubbly flake things on the surface as well with a slight translucent film near the edges. I looked up what it could be and some people said that it could just be "rogue" something. i forget. I smelt it though and it smells like it used to but then i smell again and there's this toasty sort of smell coming from it. Any thoughts?

Let it run its course and then taste. Tastes and smells change during the course of fermentation, and even at bottling, so a taste/aroma that's there now might be gone next week.
