Brew Day, Batch 338: Sometimes, the Name Comes First

I was thinking about one of my favorite movies, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, and chuckling, when I realized that Atmospherium would be a great name for a beer. And said beer would have to be a Saison.

A very dry Saison, with a small portion of rye malt. (Much can be divined from a name.) Target OG is 1.060, from Pils malt, a small portion each of Munich and rye malt, a bit of cara-Munich, and some table sugar. 30 BU from Sterling and Saaz, fermented with Wyeast 3711 French Saison yeast. Mashed for maximum attenuation, this beer should be very dry, spicy, and effervescent; very nearly out of this world!
