Err, now you tell me! (;->)
Is there a particular strain you think this is closer to? Or is it a kind of blend?
I should also mention I'm not necessarily expecting it to turn out like Duvel, but I am hoping for a clean, dry finish, which is something I haven't been able to achieve thus far (and have assumed it was due to an inability to control the temperature -- in particular the ramp-up).
I pitched at 64~66 early yesterday in the wee hours. By 5pm it was bubbling nicely. I attached the ferm wrap and dialed in 68. When I came downstairs this morning, it was at 71 (presumably of its own accord).
