Rochefort 10 Clone Mash help
I found this Rochefort 10 Clone recipe online, the author said that after brewing this he would consider just doing a infusion mash vs. the decoction mash that was originally in the recipe. I would like to brew this using a single infusion mash and need help determining what temp. I should mash at. So any recommendations would be helpful, I'm really looking forward to making this one, thanks. Heres the recipe, its a 2.75 gallon batch:

I would say mash on the high end. You dont want your attenuation to high. Its already going to be very high from the 1762. I would say like 156 maybe even 158

That's a kinda bogus recipe. Look for the one from Herman Holtrop for a more accurate recipe.

Here's a link to it....this one won a Dutch homebrew club contest after they visited the brewery....

I also think this recipe is far fetched.

Really inexperienced here, but I thought the monks would keep things simple. I'm suspicious of so many different ingredients myself. I've seen other recipes because this is my son's favorite and they all seemed MUCH simpler than this one.

Holy Hodgepodge ingredients, Batman! What a mess!

Make the Monk-y-Shines in my dropdown list instead. It's a Rochefort 8 clone, and it's pretty darned close. I got it from Denny years ago when I frequented a different homebrew site.

I see Denny beat me to it. ooopsie...

I know the trappists are rumoured to use far more sugar than we are comfortable using, but that looks way over the top. In a beer that big, that's not nearly enough malt, IMHO.

Thats the site i got the recipe from

Hermit 12-31-2009 02:49 AM

"For Bottling, added 2 oz rock candy, 2 oz turbonado sugar and 2 oz dark candi syrup."

These monks get more worldly all the time.

Sean Paxton was the brewer well I now would believe it. I remember a BN show where he talked about his trip to Belgium and went to a lot of the Trappist breweries.
