This is one of my all time favorites, and I noticed there was a kit on austinhomebrew.com . Has anyone brew'd this before?

Nice! Thanks for the quick response. I currently have an octoberfest in the primary as my first brew, but looks like I am heading to the home brew depot this weekend to get this one started! 6 months waiting huh? it's going to take a bunch of patience..... Have you ever made a clone of La Fin Du Monde?

It's an ale, a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Duvel & Damnation are some examples of this style.

The AHS recipe calls for WLP530, Wyeast 1214, or T-58. I used 2 vials of WLP530 in a 1qt starter - went from 1.082 to 1.010 in two weeks.

This needs a blowoff rig or Fermcap or whatev.

I've got a batch of this clone fermenting in the closet, and I'd like to keg it with my new kegerator setup...
But I'm wondering about the seconds batch of yeast since i won't be bottle conditioning?

Delerium Nocturnum is even better, IMO. NB has a long thread on cloning it, some of the commentary there on the yeast strains probably applies equally well to the Tremens.

I was dissapointed in the tremens as well after the hype of it being the BEST BEER IN THE WORLD. Not my number 1. But I don't have teh trained taste buds those guys do.
