well it ended up being really low.. I did not think about all this cold weather effecting my cooler mash turn. Ended up at 146 at the end. Wort tasted awesome though. I have high hopes for this beer. Also hit all my projected numbers which was nice for a change.

It's gonna be dry! But hey, Orval is probably one of the driest commercially available beers. At any rate, let us know!

Just thought I would update this. I was out of town for a while and just transfered this a few days back. Hydro reading was 1.009.. so its gonna be very dry. Warm and flat it tasted very good. Little more hoppy than I thought it would be, but I think after a few months with the brett its gonna turn out great.

Just for the record, I have read that candy sugar is a waste of money and time.

Well, kind of depends on what you mean. Most belgian beers are very dry so you need some type of simple sugar. I dont buy candy sugar I either make my own, or use Raw sugar. This beer I went with corn sugar and raw sugar just because thats what I had on hand.

Interesting read on Orval. Looks like they mash in at 145, so I guess the low mash worked out for the best.

Got the brett B. Put in a few days ago. Im still trying to decided if I want to dry hop or not, mainly because I have never picked up much hop aroma from orval.

how did you go about adding the Brett? Did you put into a secondary or just into the bottles? How long did you let them sit before drinking?
