Default "American Saison" (for lack of a better name) Gravity Question

Hey Guys -

I just brewed this:

http://hopville.com/recipe/795435/sa...ale-ale-saison

Had a question about the gravity but realized it was just because I had my volumes off in hopville.

Now that I've created this thread, I may as well ask - any thoughts on the recipe?


Thanks



Reason: found my error

Here's my saison:

Much lighter than yours, in many ways. It tastes fantastic though. I am going to have to make this beer in the spring again.

What does hallertau taste like dry hopped?

Did 3711 really finish at only 1.010?

Yah, I was surprised about the finishing gravity, thought I'd end more like 1.008. I measured the gravity about 8 days after I pitched, so the yeast could still be chomping away. I'm going to raise the temp for a few days before transferring to the bottling bucket.

Never dry hopped with Hallertau before but have used it as a late addition and like the aroma it contributes. "Spicy/Piney and Earthy" are the most common descriptors I've heard, and I won't argue with them. I think it'll go well with the Cascade's citrusy/grapefruit smells and the saison yeast's fruity nature.

Just to update - after another week, the gravity was down to around 1.002.

This has since been bottled and conditioned for 2 weeks - everyone seems to enjoy it though it is quite strong, so you have to be careful.
