Hi all, I want to brew something close to Koningshoeven's tripel. Here's the ingredients they list on the bottle.
Malts: Pale, caramel, munich
Hops: Hallertauer Northern Brew, Slovenian Super Steirer, Tettnang Tettnanger
Bitterness 27 BU
Here's the recipe I came up with.
Amount Item Type % or IBU
7.25 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 70.73 %
1.00 lb Munich Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 9.76 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 9.76 %
1.00 oz Northern Brewer [8.50 %] (60 min) Hops 25.0 IBU
1.00 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (5 min) Hops 2.6 IBU
1.00 lb Candi Sugar, Clear (0.5 SRM) Sugar 9.76 %
1 Pkgs Trappist Ale (White Labs #WLP500) [Starter 35 ml] Yeast-Ale
I'm hoping someone that's had this beer and more experience brewing, can give me some tips to get it close. Bottle says they use a unique yeast, so I'm guessing that has a lot to do with the flavor. Things I'm not sure about: hop schedule, fermentation temp, aging time (if at all)
