Glad to hear it - makes a nice beer! Sounds like more or less an American Brown ale to me. As for the saison, it all depends on what you like. I don't normally whirlpool hop them, but when I do it's with a lighter hand because I don't like to cover up the saison yeast character. But there are no rules unless we impose them on ourselves. If it sounds good, go for it! Sorachi and Lemon Drop are nice in saison, but Drew's 3711 saison with a light does of Citra is really nice, too. Go with what sounds good to you.
Big Kisses brother... I feel like my beers have evolved to the next level. I guess im just on a journey at the moment to see what if not all styles can benefit from some whirlpool love...
Clean. Sanitize. Push the sanitizer out with CO2. Prairie it to some level, say 10 to 20 PSI. You then have a sanitized, O2 free keg ready to fill. If it does not hiss when you pull the PRV before filling, you have a leak to find and fix.
I do this as well.
I'll bump the stout IBU.
Steve, you're probably right, but dry is fine by me. Rather that than too sweet. Good advice tho
