Saison w/ Spelt Brewday

Since I liked the last version of this, I’ve been thinking about trying it again, but figured that I would wait until early next year to get started. Then Wyeast had to go and release another saison yeast—Wyeast 3726-PC Farmhouse Ale—as one of their seasonal Private Collection options. Consider that dice cast. And the yeast was nice and fresh too: that smack pack blew up like an offhand comment by Sarah Palin. Y’all know the routine: consider this my early X-mas gift to myself.
