Default De Koninck

Hey all,

I must have lost the BYO issue but does anyone have a recipe for the De Koninck clone?

thanks
Todd

Jamil's recipe from the June issue isn't a perfect DeKoninck clone but it's a good Belgian Pale Ale. I have a keg which is about kicked.

For 75% Brewhouse:

10# Belgian Pils
12oz Caramunich
4oz Biscuit

4 AAU Saaz 60
4 AAU Saaz 15

I used WY3522 because the DeKoninck strain wasn't in season.

Last weekend I brewed a DeKoninck clone from DeathBrewer with a few tweaks and pitched WLP515 into it, it should be really close:

9# Belgian Pils
1# Caravienne
8oz Biscuit
8oz Flaked Oats
4oz Aromatic

4 AAU Saaz 60
2 AAU Saaz 30
2 AAU Saaz 15

Here's a partial mash conversion of DeathBrewer's DeKoninck clone. Sub 12oz Caramunich and 4oz Biscuit for the specialty grains and you have JZ's BYO recipe in minimash form.

4.5# Extra light DME or 5.5# Pilsner LME
2# Belgian Pils
1# Caravienne
8oz Biscuit
8oz Flaked Oats
4oz Aromatic

4 AAU Saaz 60
2 AAU Saaz 30
2 AAU Saaz 15

Mash grains in steeping bag at 155*F for 60 minutes. Boil for 30 minutes, then start adding hops. Add extract with the last hop addition (15 minutes left in boil) being careful to avoid scorching.

WLP515 (Sept/Oct platinum) is the DeKoninck yeast strain, use it if you can get it! I'm planning on washing my primary cake.

nice, i didn't even have to post

i used the WLP550 in most of my belgians. it gives a cleaner flavor and IMO is perfect for any belgian pale.

the "deconinck clone" i made was not intended to be a clone, but it tasted EXACTLY like de koninck after a few weeks of aging in the keg. it was a little over 1% higher alcohol, too

don't have the original recipe with me and can't seem to find it on the forums, but i'll post from home if i remember.

Crazy not 2 days ago Grape and Granary had some Antwerp Belgian yeast, now it's gone.

It was posted on the Brew Log, which seems to have been deleted.

Here was DeathBrewer's original recipe. I had written it down in my brew notes. As I recall this isn't what he brewed but what he said he would do if he re-brewed it.

9# Belgian Pils
12oz Caravienne
12oz Biscuit
8oz Flaked oats
4oz Aromatic

4 AAU Fuggles 60
2 AAU Goldings 30
2 AAU Saaz 30
2 AAU Saaz 15

I swapped 4oz of biscuit for more caravienne since I thought that was too much biscuit but I don't want to lighten the color. I used all Saaz hops because DeKoninck uses 100% Saaz.

Thanks all,

The wife and I have been going to the new brewery/brew pub in town and this is one of her favorite new beers. So this weekend I will attempt to duplicate.

Thanks
Todd

I was amazed when I brewed the BYO how much everyone loved it. I had BMC drinkers just pounding the stuff! Once I get the recipe dialed in it will definitely be a house brew.

Thanks for the partial mash conversion I can't wait to drink it. I hate watting Do you remember what you got for you OG my reading was 1.054. Comparing it to the original recipe the brew went well.
