I;m just not a fan of the 3711 Flavor profile and doubt I would like it in a Dark Saison. 3726 is the perfect one IMO… Sorry that probably doesnt help much though

I love the flavor of 3711 so I’m not worried about that. What do you think of everything else?

I like the looks of it. For some reason I’ve been gravitating to and enjoying Black IPA’s. I just brewed a batch of NB’s Saison, but I have a month to go before tasting, so your recipe is quite interesting to me. Something I’d like to try. A Black IPA with a Belgian twist :cheers:
BTW, where do you think your IBU will finalize? And please keep us posted on how it turns out.

IBU should be right around 30.

Sounds like a good recipe. It kinda hurts my head to think about a 3 gallon batch. I will need to try adding carafa at the end of a mash some time, usually I will do a cold mash with the dark grains to get the color but not body.

You realize you are saying Black India Pale Ale right?

Yes. Black Ale, Dark American Ale, Potato, Potato…
