Let me know what to look for.

In case you haven't guessed, I'm a noob, and this was only the 5th batch I've brewed.
I just bottled my Duvel clone a few weeks ago, it was 4 months old at that point, 1.5 months in primary, the rest in secondary. I waited that long because I wanted the beer as crystal clear as possible. Just let it sit, especally if you're using the Duvel strain, as that one takes forever to clear out.

To answer your question: Just wait for it. Let it clear. RDWHAHB.

I'm brewing the JZ recipe this weekend. Does that yeast (WLP 570) really need a secondary? I hate doing secondary's i was just gonna rack to a keg after a few weeks.

I'm making this tomorrow...so it is Mash at 90mins AND boil for 90mins? or just mash at 60mins and boil for 90mins. I know you have to boil for 90mins because of the pils/dms combo. Thanks for the help :-)

I think I am going to give this a shot for my first all grain. I'll pitch on a WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale cake leftover from a (extract) belgian blonde i just made. Had to sub yeast at LHBS b/c they were out of belgian wit yeast. Looking forward to it.

So when should the sugar be added? Last 10 min? Flame out? Start of boil?

I made this back about 4 months ago and I still don't think it has mellowed out enough. The pear notes from the yeast are way too strong.

You've got cojones dude for trying something like this as your fist AG.
In hindsight I'd try a simple wit recipe or pale ale to get aquainted with the process first.

I made ten gallons a month or so ago. One corny is gonna age for a long time but I'm going to tap the otehr corny soon - because i had an accident and knocked the keg over while filling. I saved about half the beer but it got severly oxygenated in the process. On the plus side- my family room has a significant permanent belgian smell to it.

Hahaha Nutcase, as if our houses don't already smell like a brewery. I made this recipe today as my first all grain. Thanks Jamil and Thanks Benedetto for the recipe. I'll report back on the results...

So how long should this beer be kept at high temps.? I did the ramp up but should the beer condition at a cooler temp?
