I plan to do this beer very soon. Although maybe might do the magnum first addition as a FWH. What do you guys reckon?

Belle saison is a machine last time I used it the FG was 1.001!

As long as you run it through some software and get the ibu's you want it should be fine.
I just made a version, but used a mixture of citra and centennial as I only 50g of citra and also added 2% acidulated malt. Fingers crossed it comes out well.

This came out lovely. After two weeks in the bottle nice crisp beer, got a bit of musky spice from the yeast and the Citra is there, though more subtle than I expected. This may go quickly.

That's good to hear! My next brew will be based on the BBN recipe in that book. Would you make any tweaks?

Ordered ingredients for this. Might dry hop 50g extra though. Also subbed flaked wheat for torrified.

Plan to use Belle Saison as its a very good dry yeast.

That's a great idea, I think that this would be improved with a more upfront hoppiness, though it's nice as it is. I thought if I did it again I'd dry hop it.

As above, I'd probably dry hop with Citra as well, maybe only 10 - 25g, just to get the hoppiness more upfront than it is.

Did anyone do a 90 minute boil when brewing this? Just thinking of DMS and the Pilsner malt

Just 60 mins once the hot break had gone, and no sign of DMS at all.

The steep step may also have helped with this, I don't know. But anyway, no issues.

Brewing this as we speak. Mashed at 65c no problems there. Gone for 60 minute boil. Will dry hop with 60g of Citra after four days fermentation. Can't wait to drink this already!
