I'm brewing. I decided to order the Janet's Brown from MoreBeer. They said the proceeds are going to a good cause, so why not. I skipped the official recipe last year and planned to this year until, you know the story.

I saw Northerbrewer had both kits on sale and sent me an email. I have my grains and hops from my own recipe coming in the mail so I am going with that

ETA:  We decided to brew a Rochefort 10 homage.

Our HBC is gonna do Big Brew at the LHBS. I'm not certain what I'll do -- something I can run on the hotter side. I'm kind of on a saison kick. Or something with kveik.

How is that yeast ? I heard it needs to be 100 degree no less no more

FWIW, Drew recommends starting saison in the low-mid 60s.

Just looked at the recipes for that.  I wonder why they call the IPA a double IPA when the OG is 1.064?  A misprint?

I didn’t look at it could it be because they are using more hops or more hops for dry hopping ?

I've only used Imperial Loki (once fresh and once repitched). Fermented about 68F (+/- 2), and came out quite clean both times. I think if you wanted to get the famed kveik tropical fruit, you might have to go hotter.

I've followed his guide with good success (start cooler and quasi open ferment to avoid the Belle Saison stall).

But half the fun is trying different stuff. 

I've heard/read multiple interviews with Belgian brewers talking about fermenting at 30-35 C. So I figure it could be interesting to give it a shot. And if I have to dump a 4L test batch, no biggy.
