I just brewed this about two weeks ago. Looking forward to it even more after all of these ringing endorsements

One mine, I was only able to get an OG of 1042 instead of the 1047. Any idea why? I'm not too worried, it's bubbling really well (even after 1.5 weeks) and has a pretty thick head on it.

Ki-ri-n, I noticed that the volume for the official recipe is 5 gallons, which is less than usual (I usually plan on boiling 7+ gallons to get 5.5 in the fermenter).

Did you perhaps brew more like 5.5 or 6 gallons, which would decrease your SG?

Nope. Right @ 5 gallons. I just etched the gallon (& 1/2) marks on all of my carboys to make things a little more accurate.

Mine has been in the Primary for just over a week now, and I am wondering what y'all got for your FG. I had an OG of 1.049 (I know, a bit high), and right now it's at 1.018, which I think it high, my software tells me to expect 1.013 (1.011-1.014), so I just wonder what it should be if I had used the specified Wyeast Trappist High Gravity yeast.

This is a beer that I can't wait to try in the glass. The taste of the hydro sample was delicious. I had a Duvel over the weekend, and I saw a definite similarity with this Patersbier (obviously the Patersbier is about half of the alcohol of the Duvel). When it's carbonated and cold, I can see how this is certainly in the same family. The T-58 yeast did not disappoint in regards to flavor, I just have this question about attenuation.

Has anyone experimented with racking it to a keg and letting it lager for three or four weeks? Because it sounds like folks have just kegged/bottled and are drinking it as soon as they can?

No lagering here but mine have been bottled for 5 weeks now and it definitely improves with time a lot. If you can stand it let it sit as long as possible.

Mine was kegged for 4 weeks before it finished and the only noticeable difference for me was clarity. I primaried for a month, no secondary, then force carbed. YMMV.
