Default All-Grain - Patersbier

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast Belgian Strong A
Yeast Starter: yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.044
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 19
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: yellow
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10
Tasting Notes: Duvel-like; light and unmistakably Belgian-tasting

This is one beer that I've had my sights set when I first began homebrewing. I love Duvel, but I didn't like that I really had to pace myself when drinking them. At 8.5% ABV, two or three of those can hit hard. So I set out to make a session version of one of my favorite beers

This is a light beer that's approachable by most (co-brewers mom only drinks crappy light beer but she found herself enjoying a couple of these), but substantial enough to keep craft beer lovers interested.

It tastes like Duvel. Pilsner malt along with a hint of Saaz hops, and a pleasant fruity yeast character to fill out the rest

Patersbier
Highwayman Brewery

0.50 oz Saaz (3.5%) - 15 min

Wyeast Belgian Strong Ale (used http://yeastcalc.com to make an appropriate starter)

this is totally next on the brew list- maybe this friday. does this beer benefit from any extending aging or like other low OG session-able beers is it ready once carbonated? made a belgian golden strong few weeks ago thats still in primary so would like a quicker turnaround beer with similar flavor.
