I kegged this after 2 weeks in the primary at 67. It's hard to keep my hands off it, I'm drinking a bit every day even though it's not quite "there" yet. A bit 'sharp' and bitter in a yeasty sort of way right now but it's improving on a nearly daily basis. I think I may have overshot the bitterness a bit messing with the hop schedule. If I brewed it again I might dial it back a notch.

Very solid beer. Wish I had a bottle of DeKoninck to compare to. Thanks for the reicpe Sacch!

how would this change is I was was to use a Belgian Pale Malt?
How long was your boil with this. I've read that any pilsner malt should have a 90 minute boil? Is this correct?

Yes, boil your first hop addition for 90 minutes (especially for all-grain). Since the hops are pretty mild in this one, it doesn't make much of a difference in overall bitterness.

Also, I just brewed this up last night. This is the first time I've used WLP515 and maaaaaaaan, it's delicious. I tasted the decanted liquid off of my starter and just about drank the whole thing.

Has anyone tried dry-hopping this beer with Saaz hops? I've got a 5-gallon batch in primary and I've got an extra ounce of hops I don't foresee using anytime soon.

I know hop flavor shouldn't be huge in this beer, but I think hop aroma could add something interesting.

Brewed this again a few weeks ago.
Was not able to get the 515 yeast, so used WLP530. Not the same, but good beer anyway.

Any tasting notes from those that used 1388? I'm torn between that, and a smack pack I have of 3789 (Orval strain with brett).

Brewed this using the Canadian/Belgian blend and took 3rd in the Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers homebrew competition this last year. I skipped the aromatic malt and fermented with the Canadian/Belgian blend. Hopped with Hallertau for the same IBUs.

That yeast gives it a pear-like fruitiness.

Trying it again today with the original grain bill and fermenting with Belgian Ardennes.
