Big Daddy Cane Saison

Here's your uninteresting fact of the day.

In the Belgian market, the share of refined white sugar 
produced from sugar cane is among the lowest in the EU. Belgium is a major sugar beet 
producer and has a negligible demand for imports of raw cane sugar for refining.

Is that going to stop me from using brown cane sugar in a Saison?  Absoluut niet.

5 lbs. Pils
4 lbs. 2-Row
1 lb. Brown sugar
1 lb. Wheat malt
.5 lb. Carastan
.5 lb. CaraAmber

.75 oz. Galena @ 60 min.
1 oz. Styrian Golding @ 5 min.

WhiteLabs WLP565 Saison I (and maybe S-05 to finish drying it out)

OG 1.068
SRM 11
IBU 35
