Had a bit of a incident with the fermentation vessel. It seems that I put to much in the vessel and it is now coming out of the airlock.
Does this means that the brew is lost? It is safe to replace the airlock with another one without further damaging the brew? should i add more yeast to replace the one I lost ?

What's this? (Hint: The answer is not a retired safety bollard from The Hellen Keller School of Driving)

That's right, the bureau of pipeline management has dedicated a sanke exclusively for Revvy Leffe fermentation.

Well, at 4 weeks in the bottle and my second attempt at this recipe and a side by side I must say this batch turned out fantastic! Thanks for the recipe Revvy! This one is going to be a regular rotation for sure

Brewing 25 gallons tonight, halfway through the mash... Beautiful color so far!

Really like this recipe. I used Fuggle to bitter and Ardennes yeast because that is what I had. I used belgian bottles so I could carbonate this beer high. Taste is very close to the original.

Thanks Revvy

Granted, it wouldn't be a Leffe Blonde clone anymore - but it might be pretty good. Thoughts?

I would think it would still turn out to be a good beer but I would expect the Belle Saison yeast to ferment very low. I got 90% attenuation with Belle Saison on the last batch I used.

When I brewed this recipe, I used some Belgian Ardennes 3522 slurry and let it ferment warm, around 80 degrees. It fermented down to 1.006, which was 90% attenuation. I carbonated the beer to 3.3 volumes and it still had great body and spiciness. Just drank my last bottle last night. It was a little over 6 months old and tasted fantastic.
