Are you still using 1214 or have you gone back to Ardennes yeast?

I've been experimenting with a few different yeasts lately but for this recipe I have come back to the Ardennes.

Default Brewed on Sunday


I've been searching for a beer to brew and this took the cake; I pulled the trigger on Sunday. Converted the recipe to a partial. I followed the recipe (for the most part) but swapped out a few things: the oats for flaked wheat and exchanged the licorice for black peppercorn. I used two packets of the 1214. A good fermentation started about 12 hours later. I'll be sure to re-post with photos and tasting notes.

Thanks GordonT!

You're welcome sir. I hope the beer went well. Send an update to let us know, and when the beer is finished, hoist one for me... or send one in the mail

I'll be making this soon. just a couple of questions:

1) We do not have licorice root ( AFAIK) here, I searched for substitute, can I use anise seeds?
2) Is the wheat malted or not?

Anise is ok as a substitute. I have even used star anise to good effect. I did use malted wheat as I do not have the set up to handle unmalted (or the desire). Good luck with it.

If you would like to try licorice you can look in your local Chinatown, or if you have a good herb store close try them. But look for fresh, still supple licorice.

I noticed it has only 6 IBU. I had Tripel Karmeliet some time ago and I remember that I enjoyed it but I cannot remember the bitterness. Isn't 6 IBU is too low?

I am fairly new to brewing, 5 extract batches in and I am ready to switch to all grain. My favorite beer is Triple Karmilite so I am going to use your recipe as my first all grain this weekend. I was just curious if you had any advice or anything you may have changed since you posted the recipe? Also how is the color? I have done an extract "white ale" that came out dark brown and I was shooting for a golden color. I was told this is because of the malt extract. So I guess my question is does this beer have the same color as Triple Karmilite? Color is not everything but I really want to fine tune my brewing to be able to get the colors I am shooting for. Thanks for any advice you have and for posting the recipe.

I tasted this beer again last night as a reminder. This is a beer with low bitterness. In side by side tastings mine is very close. Hop usage is dependent on your setup. My kettle always gets a solid rolling boil for at least 1.5 hours so I have good hop usage.

The area I miss in this beer is its floral hop/spice taste. Close but not exact yet.
