Where To Go With This Beldian Dubbel?
I used More Beer's Belgian Dubbel extract kit:
I added a pound of Caramel Pils DME and a pound of Caramel Pils malt grain. I wound up with an OG of 1.072 in a 5 gallon batch. Not realizing I didn't have the yeast I wanted, I had to use Munton's standard brewer's yeast.
I've had the brew in my primary bucket for a month now. I measured the gravity and I am at 1.020 now. The brew had a decent taste but is very cloudy and I'm still getting some bubbling in my airlock, albeit just barely.
I didn't expect these results from this yeast. I figured I would be adding a pack of S-04 and racking to my secondary to complete the brew.
So, what now?
Cut your losses. It is what it is, bottle it and be done with it. Try that recipe again next time using the proper yeast.
All that carapils will leave a beer with a lot of body. You can't undo that with regular beer yeast.
