Going to be brewing the base beer for this project this weekend. Would certainly like any and all comments and suggestions that you might be able to send my way. The recipe is loosely based off of these two recipes: http://www.candisyrup.com/uploads/6/0/3/5/6035776/westmalle_tripel_-_041.pdf http://www.candisyrup.com/uploads/6/0/3/5/6035776/westvleteren_12_clone_-_040.pdf For 5.5 gallons: 14 lbs. Belgian Pils Single infusion mash @ 150F until conversion complete First gallon of run-off boiled with 2 lbs. of white sugar until reduced by at least 1/2. Main beer boiled for 1 hour for concentration and protein coagulation. Cool to 180F and add 6 oz. Saaz Cool and pitch WLP530 - Westmalle Original Gravity 1.089 Terminal Gravity 1.011 Color 5.04 SRM Bitterness 0.0 IBU (obviously this isn't accurate, but whatever) Alcohol (%volume) 10.3% Ferment for one week, rack off of trub, and split the batch with one half remaining "plain" and the other getting 2 lbs. of D90 syrup. Original Gravity 1.125 Terminal Gravity 1.015 Color 38.88 °SRM Bitterness 0.0 IBU (again, not accurate) Alcohol (%volume) 14.8 % Ferment until a stable terminal has been reached and bottle in punted champagne bottles with 3 volumes of CO2. What do you guys think?
