Step by Step
Mash at 150 °F (66 °C). Collect wort and boil for 60 minutes, do not add any hops. Cool the wort to 100 °F (38 °C) and transfer wort to a fermenter.

Mash at 150 °F (66 °C). Collect wort and boil for 60 minutes. Turn the heat off, and either use a wort chiller to force the temperature down to 180 °F (82 °C) or simply allow to cool with the lid off for 30 minutes. Add the hops and allow to steep for 20–30 minutes before fully chilling. Transfer the chilled wort to a fermenter.

Aerate and pitch the saison yeast and Lactobacillus of your choice (Brett is optional). Ferment at 73 °F (23 °C). Approximate fermentation time in primary is two weeks. Once the gravity stabilizes, the beer is ready to package. If you are bottling, add the dry hops to the primary fermenter. Aim for 2.7 volumes of CO2.
