Sorry; I lapsed into being fancy. Yeah, there's no real difference in beer terms between table sugar and clear candi-sugar other than price and PITA level (those chunks of candi-sugar can be a real pain to dissolve).

Good luck!

Bob

So, I had never had Duvel before today. With Duvel and Pranqster in the same BJCP category it makes me wonder how is that even possible? Duvel and Pranqster are two COMPLETELY different beers. Are all of the BJCP categories so varied?

Now, as I draw near the end of my second 750ml Duvel, I find myself REALLY enjoying this beer! Its very dry, almost leaves me thirsty as it finishes but then I salivate a little and take another drink, very dangerous stuff!

However, my first impression of this was not as favorable as my first impression of Pranqster.

Forgive me if I am rambling, I have been drinking....

I suspect I will be happy no matter how this brew turns out. I wish I could drive to the store for more Duvel..... I would like to steer my brew more towards the North Coast Pranqster.

That said, I ask for more input.

I don't care.

A few goblets later

and I don't care

Im gonna brew something on saturday

Im going to use that WLP570. I have it in a starter for crying out loud... Im using it!

You all saw the list of what I have on hand, what should I do here?

now the second 750 of Duvel is gone..... should I go pee in the starter???

Screw the round trip, I can go get something else from my LHBS.

tomorrow I can go....

Dam thiat Duvel was good...

Pranqster is not that dry. How do two such different beers end up in the same BJCP style? DO THESE PEOPLE EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING?!?!?!?

So I like beer.

Does anyone around here like beer?

Gosh I like beer.

I wish the beer babe thread was still available to all members....

IMHO, it is a mistake for the BJCP to have separate categories for BSG and Tripel.

If you read the prose of the BSG category, it says "clone Duvel"

If you read the prose of the Tripel category it says "clone Westmalle"

If you read the numbers, Duvel is out of style for either and Westmalle works in either.

Prose. Great word! fits what I am thinking about BJCP right about now:
language which evinces little imagination or
animation; dull and commonplace discourse.
[1913 Webster]
They need to get their act together!

I havent had Westmalle
I wish I could go get some right now!
