Glad you liked it. I haven't brewed this in awhile, I'm considering putting it on the rotation and using brett lambicus. mmm mmmm....

I just picked up the ingredients to make this, although with WLP550. Not sure when I'll brew it though.

Got around to brewing this on Saturday. OG 1.066 w/ 89.5% efficiency. Mashed at 149.5*F for 90 minutes. My last belgian that used belgian pilsner base malt also had this high efficiency. Is there just something about belgian pilsner?

My OG was also 11 points higher than target.

Brewing this recipe soon. Did you toast your flaked oats? I toasted some last night for the first time and like the smell and taste.

Followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of switching the yeast the flanders wyeast 3739, and woohoo!!!

One of my top five beers to date, and something that I will probably keep on tap because the wife loves the belgian beers...

Thanks saccharomyces, and deathbrewer too!

I think that Flanders Ale Yeast really does something to this beer! I brewed it in 2009 the last time Wyeast released that yeast and it was great! I brewed it again July 4th this year, again using the Flanders Ale Yeast and again it was great! I took a keg of it to a home brew festival last weekend and had a couple guys that kept coming back for it and at least one guy said it was in his top three beers. I nearly floated the BPA keg (in four hours limited to 2oz samples) while my porter was still about half full.

Good thing I brewed a ten gallon batch this time!

Brewed this today. The O.G. ended up a tad high (1.060) and I used a slightly modified hop schedule since the Saaz on hand at my LHBS was 2.5% (and would have necessitated me spending at least another $2 to reach the intended IBUs that way, bleargh).

1 oz. Kent Goldings (5.8%) at 60
0.5 oz Saaz (2.5%) at 60
0.5 oz Saaz (2.5%) at 15

I'm pretty excited about this. :-)
