Wyeast 1388

I love Belgians.

We are on our way to some smokey, spicy barf juice!

Hmmm....An interesting mix. Does anyone dare add a yeast strain to close this one out?

According to my calculations here is how our recipe looks,

8lbs 2 row
2lbs Munich malt
2lbs wheat malt
1lbs peated malt
1lbs bark belgian candy sugar
4oz black patent
5tsp spruce extract

OG 1.072
FG 1.017
SRM 30 dark brown to black
mash eff 75%

IBU 44.8

2 oz armarillo 60 min
2oz argentine cascades flameout

wyeast 1388
abv 7.3%
237 calories per 12oz


So it looks like we got a smoky belgian dark ale.

Anyone gonna add anything else, and whos gonna brew it?

I plan on brewing this as a 2.5 gallon all-grain batch (I'll adjust the ratios down from the posted recipe). This way, I won't have 5 gallons of crap. If it's great I can always brew more so there will be extra note taking during this brew session.

I believe I will omit the spruce extract. I realize the point of this thread but feel that it was starting to go overboard.

I have many brews scheduled so this may not make it into the fermenter until the end of September but sometime in late October or Early November, Dark Smokey Belgian Frankenbrew it will be!

Awesome Jenks! You're a better man than I. I would love to taste this, but I just can't bring myself to brew this one. The spruce may give it a nice Christmas taste, but I can see why you would want to leave it out.

Can't wait to hear how it comes out!

The peated malt is what kind of makes me not want to brew this, i think 1pound will make this thing overboard, i might brew this but probably will cut the peated malt down to like 8 oz. Im thinking of pitching this onto a cake of T58 that i have a wit on. Im thinking probably brewing this up next month.

Im thinking a 1 gallon batch of this is in order, that way if it sucks its only a few bottles worth rather than a 5 gallon batch.
