Not necassarily a true "Saison" grain bill, more of a lets empty the grain bins type of beer, but I am hoping it turns out excellent. I have nice hot weather in my area for the next month so I am going to go with Saison yeast 3724 and ferment in my garage. I would just like some input on the recipe, I would hate to brew 16 gallons of a stinker, but I am thinking this looks pretty good.

16 gallon batch

14 pounds vienna
12 pounds pale
2 pounds oats
2 pounds rye
2 pounds C60
2 pounds dehusked carafaa III
4 pounds amber inverted candi sugar
Saison Yeast
OG = 1.066
FG = 1.008 to 1.012….shooting for not so dry with the high mash temp
IBU = 50 or so
Mash at 154 -155

1.5 oz millennium at 60
1 oz nugget at 20
1 oz cascade at 5
1 oz summit at 5
1 oz Columbus at 5
1 oz ammarilo at 5
1 oz cascade at FO
1 oz summit at FO
1 oz ammarilo at FO
1 oz Columbus at FO

Dry hop is still to be determined, but may be a pile of cascade

Just a comment on the yeast. I just made a very simple extract saison using 3724 that fermented in the high 80's/low 90's. After 5 weeks the gravity still hasn't quite dropped to my liking yet. Patience, young grasshopper.

I'm liking it! I actually had something similar in mind but without the IPA part....sort of a black rye saison using a slurry of wyeast 3711. Very interested in seeing how it turns out! Love those hops, too.

After one month, I just put the dry hop (columbus and amarillo) into this beer and took a gravity measurement and tasted a sample. Gravity is sitting at 1.006.......flavor is nothing short of fantastic. This yeast strain is AMAZING........... I don't get much farmhouse "funk" from it at all. Just a balance of flavor (spice, fruit, sour) that I have never tasted before.....love it.

I really like that yeast too. I was drinking one of my Black Saisons last night and realized that it is a great brew.

Your brew sounds good. Keep us posted about the flavor after it is done and carbed up.

yes, i too was thinking along these lines, and glad to hear it's tasting excellent and i'll be following for more updates too!

i LOVE Firestone's Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA, and there is a thread on here with a great sounding clone of that. i've been toying with pretty much brewing that clone, but fermenting with 3711... don't know if i should change up the original grain bill much being it's a totally different yeast, or just go for it. either or, a black rye saison sounds great!
