I'm trying to use some leftover grain that's been lying around. I have 3711 French Saison yeast and 1056 American Ale on hand.

Grains

7.8lbs of Briess Munich
5.9lbs of Wheat Malt
4.6lbs of 2-row
4.3lbs cara-40
2.0lbs carapils
1.8lbs of Rye malt
1.0lbs Raw honey

Hops I have are Simcoe, galaxy, perle, willamette, amarillo, magnum, centennial, cascade. I'm leaning towards trying something with the 3711, just started trying to figure something out for today, thought I would ask for help! Cheers!

2-row
Wheat
a bit o' cara-40
Honey

and you've got a decent saison.

Tank 7 from Boulevard uses Amarillo for flavor and dry hop and that's a dang good one.

8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.7 %
1 lbs Honey (1.0 SRM) Sugar 5 9.3 %

I think we're on the same page! I just wrote down.

4.6lb two row
4.6lb white wheat
3.0lb munich
1.8lb rye
0.5lb caramel 40

This gave me an OG of 1.057, wondering what the munich will add to the beer? too much body?

It'll make beer, that's for sure. I'm not a big Munich guy, but it'll add some color. You definitely want a light bodied saison, but if you mash low enough (148-150*F) and/or add honey it'll lighten the bod.

Pick your OG, but I would go with 1.048
35% 2 row
35% munich
20% wheat or rye
10% honey, added just after high krausen.
60 minute addition of Perle and 20 minute addition of Galaxy(and more to dry hop)
Go with your 3711

Use it all to make a 10 gallon batch (only 1 lb total of the cara malts). Then split between two carboys, pitch one yeast in each, and report back with your results!
