Batch 203, Saison

Another batch of saison. The last batch had additives that came across too strong, so I'm planning to use this batch to dilute some of that and make it more palatable.

10 gallon batch

22 lb pilsner malt
1.5 lb caramunich
1.25 white wheat

Heated 9 gallons of mash water to 165F, mashed in aiming for 148F, got 150F, close enough. Adjusted pH to 5.2, forgot to adjust the sparge water pH again.

4.5 oz Saaz pellets in a nylon, 60 minutes
2 tsp Irish Moss
3 oz Saaz pellets in a nylon, 5 minutes

90 minute boid

Wyeast 3724, Belgian Saison yeast, just one package since that's all they had at the homebrew store, but did a 2 quart starter for it, so it should be sufficient.

OB 1.056 actual

Update, 10 Oct 2017, the yeast wasn't sufficient, and I had some really nice looking yeast from the guava IPA I did recently, so I added about a pint of thick slurry from it to the saison. Finished in no time!
