Summer Saison

I haven’t brewed a saison yet this year so I wanted to brew a fairly simply, dry, low ABV saison for warmer weather. My fermentation chamber is also full, so I wanted to brew a beer that could ferment at warmer temps. This is a fairly simple recipe where I think the Vienna malt and EKG hops will shine. Sticking fairly traditional here with malt/hop selections but will dry hop for a little something extra. Haven’t used Imperial’s Rustic strain. I guess it’s the Wyeast Farmhouse yeast which is fairly popular. I’ve had great luck with French Saison yeast but looking to change it up this time.
