#80: Gluten-Reduced Brett Saison

I have had several items/techniques/ingredients that I've wanted to try out, but haven't been brewing much lately.  So...  decided to do all at once.  I have been trying to eat gluten-free(ish) lately (though I've slid the last few weeks), and thus a vial of Clarity Ferm to make a gluten reduced beer.  I bought a vial of WLP670 to make my first Brett beer.  I bought some cubeb berries for brewing.  I bought a box of Kashi Honey 7-grain cereal to make a Sugar Puff beer.  So...  let's mash that all together!  This actually seemed to all work together for a gluten-reduced brett saison.  I also have some oak cubes soaking in merlot, but I think I'll save those for another brew.  The intent here is to keep this in primary for 90 days (following recommendation by Embrace the Funk), and hoping I ferment near 1.0.  I guess we'll see.  I'm starting at 64 degrees, and will try to ramp it a bit every few days, settling (hopefully) around 80 or so.  The last saison I did was during a summer, so I got near 90 (yikes), but it was one of my favorite beers.  The fermenter (and some tubing, etc.) will now be wild beer only.  That's great, as I intend to keep wild ales in the rotation from here on out.  I had no idea how to account for the cereal in Beersmith, so I listed the weight of it as torrified wheat.  That put things at 1.075, and I hit 1.074, so I guess that was OK.
