1 tsp (4 g) grains of paradise, 0 minutes

1 oz. Hallertauer (aroma)
Yeast: Two (2) packages Wyeast 3724 Belgian Saison Yeast, or two (2) White Labs WLP550 Belgian Ale Yeast, or an appropriate yeast starter
NOTE: Saison should be a dry beer. If your attenuation is not enough, you may need to add a secondary yeast such as Champagne yeast (White Labs WPL 715, or Wyeast 4021) or an attenuative ale yeast (White Labs WLP 001, or Wyeast 1056) to achieve the correct attenuation.
Log: Next chill to 73-76F (22-25.5C), transfer to a fermenter, pitch the yeast and aerate well. Continue fermenting at 76F (25.5C) for a total of one week. Rack to secondary for another week. Rack to keg, or if you are bottling rather than kegging, add the bottling sugar and then bottle as you normally would.
