Default Saison Brew, low boil temp

I have something to run by everyone. I picked up an extract kit from my LHBS yesterday and the guy that designed the recipe told me to boil (as it says in the directions) at 150 degrees. It just seems weird to throw boil and that low of a temp together. Has anyone mad anything by doing their boil at this or similar temp??

Does the kit come with specialty grains? If so, they are probably intended to be steeped at 150F for around 30 minutes or so, then brought to a boil and add your malt extract.

The guy must have been confused. Under normal conditions, water won't boil at 150 degrees. He may have been thinking about steeping or mashing temps.

In any event, follow the similar process as your other brews. Go for it!

they've got their boil and their steep switched. you should steep your grains at 150F and boil your hops.

Yeah, those directions are pretty horrible
There really isn't such a thing as a "gentle boil at 150F"
You need to steep the grains at 150F for 30 minutes, remove grains, bring to boil, add malt extract, then boil for an hour with your different hop additions at times indicated.

Well lets go ahead and say I have the wort into the primary now, what do you think will be the final verdict from just steeping my DME and hops into it?

You risk infection. The boil helps kill anything in the beer.

I don't think you have to worry about DMS issues with extract.

Your hops didn't get utilized properly.

ummm... hops and boiling

Well I just called the guy at the LHBS and he stated that is how he brewed the beer and the recipe is correct!?! So I guess I will follow up in two months when I find out how it turned out.

Well, I hate to tell you, but if you left it at 150 the whole time, and he told you that was correct, he's an idiot.

You're new and you'll learn that not everyone out there is right (trust me, I'm wrong a LOT!)

You will get beer out of this batch, but I guarantee you that steeping is not the way to go. You need a full rolling boil for beer.
