Default Schlafly Tripel - Anyone have a recipe?

I just tried this beer and that is ranking up pretty close to the Allagash Curieux (Allagash is still better) and I'm thinking I want to make it. A quick google search only shows that some people have made it but I can't find the recipe anywhere. Would really appreciate any help here.

Jeff

Hey guys - with help from the guys over at Midwest Supplies, here's what we've got. Any input? Kind of insane that it's 24lbs of extract in it (and 4lbs of sugar). I've never done a 1 gallon boil and added that much before.

Also, what do we think about the fermenting times? I was thinking around 2 months in primary and 2 in secondary.

1.5 lbs Carapils steep in one gallon separately at 155F for 30 mins then add
4 6lb jugs of Gold LME or 20lbs Golden Light DME
4lbs Corn Sugar (add at the same time as extract)


1oz Maryrnka (Czech Saaz is a good sub.) @ 60 mins
1oz Lublin (Sterling hops for sub.) @ 45 mins
1 oz Hallertau @ 10 mins

2 pkgs. White Labs Abbey Ale #530 or Wyeast #1214

1 gallon boil then divide the whole thing by 10 because the recipe I setup was for a 10 gallon batch. You could probably mix some of the LME with dry to reduce volume. I would also change the hopping schedule to look more like this. Everything I have read on Tripels you only want additions for bittering and aroma. Not really flavor hops.

Amt Name Type # %/IBU
2.4 oz Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 1 7.3 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz DME Golden Light (Briess) (4.0 SRM) Dry Extract 2 73.2 %
6.4 oz Sugar, Table (Sucrose) (1.0 SRM) Sugar 3 19.5 %
0.16 oz Marynka [8.00 %] - Boil 90.0 min Hop 4 18.3 IBUs
0.10 oz Lublin [5.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 5 7.1 IBUs
0.05 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh [4.00 %] - Boil 1 min Hop 6 0.1 IBUs

Hmm, that's way different than what we came up with. What we had was actually wrong. The math was off and so we had this for a 5 gallon cook:

0.75 lbs Carapils seep in one gallon separately at 155F for 30 mins then add
7.7lbs Golden Light DME
2lbs Corn Sugar (add at the same time as extract)

0.5oz Maryrnka (Czech Saaz is a good sub.) @ 60 mins
0.75oz Lublin (Sterling hops for sub.) @ 45 mins
0.5oz Hallertau @ 10 mins

2 pkgs. White Labs Abbey Ale #530 or Wyeast #1214

Why is yours so different? i.e. the original recipe called for 4lbs of sugar for a 10 gallon cook and you're saying only 6.4oz. Also, if only doing a 1 gallon seep to start with, how do you get it to 5 gallons? I'm very confused right now.

I seen 1 gallon boil and thought you were wanting this scaled to a 1 gallon batch. That is why mine looks so different. I misunderstood your intent.

Actually I think this changed again. From what I was told, when it comes to the steeping grains you don't want to do that in the whole 10 gallons because you can extract tannins and other stuff from the grains that will affect the beer negatively. You want to steep them in a separate pot in just a gallon and add them when you are adding the extract and sugar. I don't know that this is the case since I'm doing a 5 gallon cook.

Not really sure on steeping and tannin extraction so someone familiar with this method may be able to chime in. For a 5 gallon batch here are the numbers I came up with

Amt Name Type # %/IBU
12.0 oz Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 1 7.3 %
7 lbs 8.0 oz Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 2 73.2 %
2 lbs Sugar, Table (Sucrose) (1.0 SRM) Sugar 3 19.5 %
0.75 oz Marynka [8.00 %] - Boil 90.0 min Hop 4 18.2 IBUs
0.50 oz Lublin [5.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 5 7.1 IBUs
0.25 oz Hallertauer Mittelfrueh [4.00 %] - Boil 1.0 min Hop 6 0.1 IBUs

Good luck and let us know how this turns out.

So I took a straw and took a sip of this yesterday - WOW. This is going to be a fantastic beer. It very closely resembles the Allagash Curieux clone I did a while back. Right now there is very little hints of alcohol in the taste but the flavor is delicious. One more month in the secondary and I'm bottling.

Wow, I can't believe they use cara-pils in a tripel. Can't imagine it's more than 2-3% tops. I'm guessing sugar is probably in the 15-18% area. Tripels should be dry. You don't need body in a tripel. DME is 10-15% carapils so I would drop the cpils entirely when doing extract.
