I know this is an old post, but it sounds interesting, and I really want to make a belgian pale. I just stared doing partial mashes ("mini-mash"). Could you provide a little more info about steeping temperatures, time, sparging temp.and volume?
Is it pretty standard 155- 160 for 45min to an hour, then sparge at 170F?

Yea, that'd be awesome.
Also the recipe above doesn't specify dried extract or liquid.

Ok, i use Austin Homebrew supply and they only sell 4 types of liquid extract:
Amber Liquid Malt Extract
Dark Liquid Malt Extract
Extra Pale Liquid Malt Extract
Wheat Liquid Malt Extract

Is "extra pale" close enough to "light malt"

here. i won't be home until late tonight, but Saccharomyces brewed a version of it. he changed the hops to saaz (i used styrian goldings) and changed the yeast to 515 (i used 550)

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/de-k...50/#post896088

the caravienne is important

i could convert this to an extract recipe if you don't want to do partial mash. PM is easy, tho...check out the link in my sig.

you'll want to use Pilsner extract if you can get it. that sucks AHS doesn't have it...weird. extra light would be best if you can't find any.
