This is my 3rd saison, but I've yet to bottle one, so I'm still shooting in the dark here a bit. I'm in the process of harvesting the dregs from a Pretty Things Jack D'or to use as the yeast (theres 4 different strains [2 belgian, 2 saison] used in it so who knows what I'll end up with). Let me know if you have any suggestions

OG: 1.045ish, IBU: 25ish
6lb Pilsner Malt
1.5lb Munich 10
0.5lb White Wheat
1oz Carafa III

0.75oz Falconers Flight @15
1oz @5
1oz @Dry Hop

1L starter from Jack D'or Dregs

mash temp 152F

Reason: update recipe

Looks good, the Victory might be a little out of place, IMO.

ya I may cut out the victory. I've seen it used in some saison recipes (well biscuit) and was thinking of using it for some extra dextrins since its a smaller brew, but im not sure if its needed. I've only made 3 beers this low in gravity, and the only one that wasn't from a partigyle was the only one that wasn't that great. I just don't want it to be lacking

the dregs are certainly active in this, I stepped up my starter last night and have a pretty sizable cake & krausen.

Dan of Pretty Things said the recipe has: North American Pils, Vienna, Wheat and Malted Oats (among others) and is hopped with a combination of four hops, finishing with Palisade and Nugget.

Also, heard somewhere that one of the 4 yeasts is a champagne strain (pasteur?) to dry it out. Makes me think 3711 probably isn't one of the belgian strains as it would dry it enough by itself. Dan is known to tinker with his recipes a little bit each year. The IBUs on Jack D'or moved from 45 to 57 on this summer's batch.
