Saison Du ner recipe added

Saison Du ner was my first all grain brewed beer.  I was happy with the way it turned out overall.  Very drinkable.

The Recipe page has recently been updated to include this beer.  Though the beer is fully mine, the recipe was inspired by (if that is a good way to say it) the recipe for Saison Du Buff, the collaboration beer by Stone, Victory and Dogfish (three companies who know a thing of two about good beer).  The primary difference is that I selected to keep with with beer ingredients only and not add any of the spices.  The Belgian Saison yeast brings a heavily spicy and ester profile anyway.  Additionally, I used Citra hops for flavor and aroma (not convinced this was a terrific idea).

...A good start.
