You should get a huge Amarillo aroma, mostly fruit and citrus, if not I'd say its a bit old.

For the pepper, I'd expect that a bit with a Belgian yeast, but the lack of aroma makes me suspect some age on the bottle.

I'll be doing this on the weekend, although we don't have access to Honey Malt in this country, so I'll be subbing in cara-belge and Melanoiden malt.
No Simcoe either, so its been subbed for amarillo as well.

Sounds good, let us know how it turns out. About time for me to rebrew this.

Oh and by the way I've turned it Partial Mash, to shorten the Brew day...
It'll lower the abv a little, but it sounds like it'll still taste awesome!

This recipe sounds intriguing to me and has me wanting to brew it.

I have had a pack of Wyeast 3724 (Belgian Saison) laying in my fridge that needs used and was wondering if this would work for this recipe? I also have some WLP400 Belgian Yeast that has been washed but I was hoping I could use the Wyeast to get rid of it?

Any thoughts on if the 3724 would work?

Thanks.

it'll make beer
I couldnt offer an opinion with this exact recipe, but I'd give it a go, half a split batch at least, to see if its something you'd make again. I like Saison yeast,
If it were me, I'd split at least 1 gallon off and ferment with the saison yeast. alternatively you could half it, or just do the whole lot?

Splitting it sounds like an option. I have since searched for Belgian IPA's that use 3724 with favorable reviews. But I think I'll just go with a split batch between the 3734 and the WLP400 to see which one is better. You are right though that either way, in the end, I will have beer!

At any rate, it will be a while before I get around to brewing this beer as Strawberry harvest season is approaching here in Ohio and I've got plans on making some delish Strawberry Wheat for my next couple of batches!

Sounds good post back with results. Personally i think you'll prefer the 3724 strain.

I will post results, but like I said, it might be a while before I get around to brewing this recipe.
