Funny you replied today -- This was next on my list to make, but I realized the kit thats been discussed is the AG, and I dont do AG yet... So, I instead went with a sweet stout I want to try this -- is it similar to Blue Moon? I saw someone reference that earlier, and kind of scared me off since I'm not a huge fan.

I made a lighter version of this recipe recently. I used the exact grain bill, but my efficiency is 70% and batch size is 5.5gal (11gal. actually). The OG turned out at 1.048.

All I can say is wow! It's been hot here and this is a great thirst quencher and session beer. I split my first batch with my brewing buddy but I knew my 5 gal. keg wouldn't last long. So I brewed up another batch for myself. By the end of my brewing session that first keg ran out after only two weeks on tap. Can't wait till this batch is ready to drink.

Thans again for this recipe BierMuncher!!!

Agreed - this is an excellent summer beer, even though it's still a little potent at about 6.5%. A good friend of mine - and an über beersnob - tried this last night, and liked it so much, asked for a batch of it to have at their wedding.

Nothing like some award accolades and beersnob conversions to validate good homebrew.

I didn't use a Belgian yeast, I had some US-05 on hand so I used that, I measured the gravity after about 2 weeks and it was 1.010. It's clearing in the secondary right now and I plan on bottling it this wekend. I'm looking forward to it in about a month or so. I'll post again to publish the results. Wish me luck!
Update - This turned out to be a pretty good beer for my 3rd AG attempt. I'm pleased with the results from using the US-05 yeast, FG at bottling was still at 1.010 not too bad for me . The taste is great, color is excellent, it doesn't have that tangyness from a true Belgian yeast, but I still like it allot, still have just under a case left, great recipe. I'm planning on having a few with dinner tonight. I ended up using about 5 oz of corn sugar for bottling and could have used a little more, it's not under carbed just a little less carb than I would like in a beer of this style. I'll definitely make this again.

I was reading through this and wondering if there had ever been a BM approved Partial Mash Clone of this? I saw several tries but there were either ignored or had suggested modifications. Is the extract posted on the second page the closest thing?
