Haha, the label on "Maudite" is my favorite label, by far, ever- like a canoe rowing over hell, or some-such.

Should we be able to figure out a good clone for it, and should I be able to obtain necessary supplies, do you think I could do a half-way decent job if this is the first beer I'm brewing? Or should I knock around with some others first?

Maybe this isn't the right forum for those questions? Sorry, am new.

Sure consider it a baptism of fire.
It won't be easy, but it will be worth it if you do it right.

Yes I just heard recently that it is a propietary strain that they developed. I have a friend headed up to Montreal in a couple weeks on business and he has volunteered to swing by the brewery to ask all the right questions now as for as the answers go.

I am fairly certain that culturing the yeast from the bottle is going to be the way to go on this one.

You know how tempting that is! I would pretty much do it this summer no problem, but the Baroness is laden with Baron progeny. Maybe next year...I want to swing by Banff/Jasper and the old digs in the GP.

glibbidy, I'm super curious to hear what your friend finds out if he makes it by.

Mmmmm...Trois Pistoles. Tried some at the BeerFest this weekend. The booth was a bit crowded so I didn't get to try all of them. This seems like a fantastic brewery to me.

Yeah, some people really hate it. I didn't really like it at first, but then all of a sudden it blew my mind. There are some I still don't like all that much. One of my faves is Raftsman though, and the Ephemere fruit flavors. They totally have the aroma aspect of it nailed. Damn, I'm gonna have to go get some now! Oh well, the 750ml bottles have champagne tops so at least I'll be getting a couple more bottles!

I live quite close to the Unibroue facility in Chambly and odds are your friend will get a polite 'non, merci' to your request for a yeast sample.

Wyeast carries it commercially (W3864), why not make life easier and order some?

Tell your buddy to drop by the Brewery restaurant 'Fourqet Forchette'

http://www.fourquet-fourchette.com/e.../fourquet.html

and also

http://www.bedondaine.com/index_en.html

which is a new brewpub nearby

I don't believe anybody is requesting a sample...the yeast can be easily purchased, as you indicate. It is also apparently easy to culture from the bottle, though not everybody is convinced they are the same strain (though I am). That is one of the questions that would be asked, though it may still result in a 'non, merci.' The implications of being able to culture from the bottle is that it would be available year-round, while the 3864 if only seasonably available for a couple of months.

That Fourget Fourchette looks amazing. My wife wants to take one last vacation before her due date and Montreal/QC are definitely on the list...that restaurant could convince me.

I misunderstood the implications of the question, sorry.

The yeast is a proprietary strain with roots going directly to back to Belgium. Exactly which brewery depends on who you ask.

They use the same strain for bottling.

A friend of mine is opening a brewpub in downtown Montreal called 'Benelux', obviously featuring Belgian style beers. You'll want to check that out as well as the other world class pubs/micros if you come up this way.

I first tried Ephemere at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia... I had no idea where it was from, who made it, or anything.

Then the first week of April, I went to Quebec City and stumbled upon the Unibroue rack in the beverage section of a supermarket. I wanted to try one of each, but I restrained myself and stuck to Ephemere

On my way back to the US, we also visited Montreal where I tried Blanche de Chambly. They are all great beers! I was really impressed, and now I'm on a constant search to find them here in PA.

Thanks Mikey, I will alert him to these finds.

As far as the yeast goes, I'll probably culture some from the bottle to try refermentation, and get some of the W3864 for primary when I'm ready to make this bad boy.
