I was originally toying with saison and have a decent recipe that I have done before ready to go. I wanted to try something different and basically do an IPA/saison hybrid but decided against it. Maybe I should reconsider saison...

That's something I have planned for this summer myself. I'm surprised that this hybrid style hasn't been popping up all over. I'm thinking that since saisons finish so dry, then a Saison yeast would be a perfect fit for an IPA if you matched up the right hops.

So I have only brewed about 15 batches of beer. Would like to do a Saison. Any of you guys mind sharing an easy all grain recipie? I cannot control my temps very much either. Everything I brew is fermented at about 67-69 degrees.

My house saison is:

78% Pilsner
15% Wheat
7% Aromatic
OG=1.040
60 mins: 25 IBU using the noble hop of your choice
flameout: 1-2 oz of noble hops
WY3711 in the mid-to-upper 60's for 3 weeks.

Just be sure to pasteurize your pineapple puree before you add it to the beer.  Otherwise, the bromelain enzymes will denature the proteins in the beer.

The other option would be to add the pineapple to you boil kettle at whirlpool.
