Yardarm Ale

I started this recipe with the intent to make some version of a pirate-themed spiced rum ale, but I really think it would end up tasting like a pumpkin beer and that isn't refreshing in summer.  So sticking with the sailing/pirate theme in name only, here is one of my favorite styles.  Saison.

Malt bill:
9 lb Briess Brewers 2-row Malt
0.5 lb Briess Caramel 20L Malt
0.33 lb Dingemans CaraVienne
0.33 lb Dingemans Aromatic
1 lb Cane sugar

Hops bill:
1 oz Brewers Gold (7% AA, Pellet) @ 60 min.
0.5 oz Styrian Golding (5% AA, Pellet) @ 15 min.

1/2 tsp. crushed coriander @ 15 min.
1 tsp. sweet orange peel @ 10 min.
