This beer will be fermented in the top of my barn. The temp is around 80*f- 90*f. I want to take this one back to the origins of a saison with a present day influence. We'll see what the weather does?

Grain/hops look good, but why WLP550? Saisons are mostly about the yeast.

You absolutely need a saison yeast - ie wlp 568 . 568 yeast is a saison and Belgian blend and I highly recommend it. It took my saison down to 1.004 with great characteristic flavors.

Other than that, looks good- let us know how it turns out!
