I'm thinking the amber sugar is not right.

I was wandering if the amber sugar would give it too much color. It is a pretty golden in color.

I would just use table sugar in place of all the candy sugar.

Did you end up brewing this? What made you settle on WLP500 instead of 530 or 570? Also, why wheat and Munich instead of the standard pilsner and a touch of aromatic malt which is more standard for the style?

I haven't brewed it yet. I didn't feel I had the recipe dialed in yet. What would you suggest?

Well I guess that really depends on the iteration you prefer the most. I guess they just recently decided to make it a Tripel instead of a BGSA and I haven't tried that. Back when it was a Golden Ale I tried it and thought it was delicious. I remember it being fairly gentle on the spices and decently fruity, but mainly just nice and light and clean. I would say WLP530 or WLP510 would be your best bet for that, but the differences between all of the belgian yeasts are very distinct, but incredibly difficult to characterize. I just compared 4 of them side by side and I'd say that I would be perfectly happy with any of them in either a tripel or a BGSA. For grain bill I would guess it's fairly simple, Randy Mosher's book has an interesting BGSA recipe. Interesting because of the simplicity.

12lbs Pilsener
2lbs white corn sugar

That's it.

I'd guess Damnation is that, plus maybe like 8oz biscuit malt or aromatic malt, and maybe a tiny bit of munich. I like the idea of some wheat though. Not sure if it fits the style, but it sounds nice.

Try emailing Russian River? They tend to help out homebrewers all the time

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just had this beer, and I LOVE it. Anyone nail down a solid clone for it?
