I definitely noticed a difference when I started brewing saisons. Some of the older advice and recipes for saison mentioned using a sugar addition, added incrementally. Along with the normal high attenuation I just felt that it was overkill in a couple cases. Very, very dry. Plus if you mash low enough I just don't feel the need for sugar in saison - the attenuation will be there. A healthy saison starter is gonna drive OG down around 1.000 anyway.

I did an incremental feeding on a tripel a few months back and it got so dry I had to brew another tripel with 10L crystal malt to blend the 2.

Yeah, but I'm getting that kind of attenuation without it.  How much more attenuation do you get over adding it to the kettle?

Yeah, well when I add sugar to the kettle, it gets so dry the beer turns to sawdust!  ;)

Oh, yeah?  When I add sugar to the fermenter the beer gets so dry you have to rehydrate it with beer.

Haha you guys are funny. Hope to see your stand up routine in Grand Rapids this summer.

Getting about 5 points drier on incremental feeding. Too dry. I'm actually not advocating the technique.

88-90 as is plenty dry for any Belgian.
