Farmhouse Table Saison

With the bottle dregs from my Rayon Vert Saison progressing nicely.  I have decided to brew a Saison instead of the Woody Wood Pecker I planned on.  This recipe is from The Mad Fermentationist , Personally I have never brewed with Rye in a Saison before so I am excited to brew this and add the Dreg's from the Rayon Vert in Secondary.

This is off the Madfermentationist's website. I am using the Dreg's from a Rayon Vert from Green Flash. (Dregs from 3, 12 oz bottles) The brett will be added when transferring into 2ndary.

Update #1

The last day of 2011 and I choose to spend my day moving beers around.  I got to try this when transferring to secondary and it is awesome, one of my best Belgian/Farmhouse beers to-date.  What did I do next?  Added Brett.  Yup, I added the dregs from my Rayon Vert Dreg flask.  From this date I am giving it one month to add a little but of funk.

Update #2

I was kind of expecting this beer to change quickly.  The cloudiness is a little painful as I know Brett will clear the beer over time.  So waiting more than a month might be in order.  At this point (1-12-12) I still have very high expectations for this beer but waiting is killing me.

Update #3

Today I keged this beer.  8 Months after expected.  Going to cold crash for a couple of weeks and bottle with my beer gun.

Update #4

Tasting Notes and final thoughts.
