i'll go with a small starter then. rather have it finish cleaner than not enough.

low mash + high ferm temps + saison yeast + sugar = monster attenuation

WY3711 is just an animal.

Even though we pitched low on purpose, we had an extremely healthy, viable starter (O2 and stir plate). I can't stress how important healthy, viable yeast is.

The sugar and higher ferm temp helps too.

Thanks for all the info! This recipe looks great. I'll be brewing it soon, maybe just with lighter sugar for my desired color.

Making something very similar to this on Saturday. Replacing the Pils with 2-row, since it's what I have one hand. Excited!

just added my sugar to this last night, gravity was @ 1008 and krausen had just fell. i used turbinado so the color is going to be pretty light, and fermented @ 73-74. it smells/taste great even at a week, pretty pumped.

Interesting recipe! I have a few questions about it. What type of sugar are you using? The syrups I've seen have much lower SRM's, are you using rock sugar? If you could link the product that would be great. Also, did you bottle condition these? I kegged a batch of Saison and bottled from the keg for a competition to about 3 vols and got dinged for under carbonating.

EDIT: And one more questions, did you enter as a specialty Belgian (16E) or a Saison? It seems pretty dark for a saison.
