Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 10.5 lbs Belgian Pils

    Belgian Pils

    Pilsner style malted barley grain.

  • 1 lbs Crystal Malt 60°L

    Crystal Malt 60°L

    Sweet caramel flavor, deep golden to red color. For dark amber and brown ales.

  • .5 lbs Special B - Caramel malt; Dingemans

    Special B - Caramel malt; Dingemans

    The darkest of the Belgian crystal malts, Dingemans Special B will impart a heavy caramel taste and is often credited with the raisin-like flavors of some Belgian Abbey ales. Larger percentages (greater than 5%) will contribute a dark brown-black color and fuller body.

  • 1 lbs Candi Sugar Amber

    Candi Sugar Amber

    Smooth taste, good head retention, sweet aroma and high gravity without being apparent. Use in Belgian and holiday ales. Use clear for tripels, amber for dubbels, and dark is used in brown beer and strong golden ales.

  • 1 oz Styrian Goldings - 3.8 AA% pellets; boiled 60 min

    Styrian Goldings

    Mild, pleasant.

  • 1 oz Saaz - 8.1 AA% pellets; boiled 5 min

    Saaz

    Used for finishing pilseners, continental lagers, and wheats. The aroma is spicy and pleasant with fragrant overtones.

  • 1 tbsp Yeast Nutrient (AKA Fermax) - (omitted from calculations)

    Yeast Nutrient (AKA Fermax)

    Helps yeast stay active during fermentation

  • 1 tbsp Irish Moss - (omitted from calculations)

    Irish Moss

    A dried red-brown marine algae. Fining agent to remove large proteins. Negatively charged polymer attracts positively charged protein-tannin complexes (extracted from grain husks and hops) during the boil. This action is aided by the clumping of proteins in the boiling process. Irish moss settles to the bottom of the brew kettle with spent hops and hot break material at the end of the boil.

  • White Labs WLP500 Trappist Ale

    White Labs WLP500 Trappist Ale

    From one of the six Trappist breweries remaining in the world, this yeast produces the distinctive fruitiness and plum characteristics. Excellent yeast for high gravity beers, Belgian ales, dubbels and trippels.
