DirectionsThe grain bill matches Boulevard Tank 7, and the hops schedule is close (though they use a different bittering hop.) Increase flavor hops to taste, or do a hop stand if you prefer.

Depends on yeast selection. I used a very aggressive schedule with Belle Saison. Underpitched by using a single packet not rehydrated, pitched at 80F, and after 2 days ramp by 2F per day to 86F. For a somewhat cleaner beer, ferment 10 degrees lower.

The yeast wasn't as funky as some saison yeast at those temps, but plenty adequate. No fusels, tangy nose with an almost malty-tasting flavor in the middle, and goes down with some yeasty funk. It is a little tough to tell where the amarillo hops ends and the yeast begins. It finished at 1.004 from 1.071 but it doesn't taste thin, at all.

If you want a real funky-ass "whoa" on the end of the thing, go with a more flavorful strain. I love how it turned out though, I'll be brewing again soon as it is my favorite beer that I've made. Haven't decided whether I want to try going up to 90F or not, it seemed about right where it ended up.
