WLP670 American Farmhouse Blend @ 68 degrees. Don't go hot like some people are wont to do with saisons. It will stall out in the low teens, then the brett will kick in and take it down below 1.010.
***WARNING*** Yeast contains Brett. Be careful with cross contamination in your brewery.
The recipe was based off of the Saison de Pipaix recipe in the book Farmhouse Ales by Phil Markowski (Great read. Check it out).
I have been zeroing in this recipe for a good number of batches and I am finally at a place where I'm really happy with it. I took some to a beerfest last month and people loved it. Had tons of people come back for seconds and thirds. Very easy drinking. Perfect for a hot day.
I'd say two months is bare minimum when drinking this as that's when the gravity settles, but I'd go for at least 3-6 months. Could easily be taken longer, but I have never made it past 6 months as it's everything I want at that age.
