Saffron Tripel

I went to Austin Homebrew Supply to get ingredients for this recipe and Brown Shugga. When I wrote the recipe in BeerSmith, I forgot to adjust my efficiency, and didn't buy enough grains. So maybe this is more of a Saffron Tripel.

Satan asked me what the saffron tasted like. I didn't bother to taste it.  A dozen threads in a five gallon batch are going to contribute much beyond a shade of gold.
