I am giving this a go. Any advice on fermentation? I see similar styles will do a slow fermentation going from 68• for a few days gradually up to 80•. Can anyone confirm? I plan on brewing in 2 daya

Sorry for the delay in responding, Here's my advice for what it's worth ..... IMHO start low and stay low. keeping it about 65-68 will keep the esters low letting more earthy flavors and aroma's come through. WLP500 can get pretty heavy on esters if you ferm to high.

So within the first two days, the krausen level went NUTS! i still have it in ice bath
So hopefully wheni get it up to temp, it will get active again. Did you experience
Something similar?

Im real excited about this, the taste is pretty good atm. Once it mellows out thisll be real good.

NO DOUBT!!! I used a adequate starter for this and within three hours I had a 3" krausen which by the third day was already down to 1.018 which was below what beersmith projected. like I said as long as you stay below 70 ( pref no higher than 68) and finish it out it should mellow very nicely. good luck and let me know how it turns out in the end.

Hey sorry i didnt get back sooner. Maybe i should turn on notifications when someone replies?

Tonight i bottled this. OG was 1.131 FG 1.024 which brings us to 13.9% ABV. So very good there. Im a little concerned with the color and flavor, though. Its a 3.9° on the the color chart so it seems to be a bit too light for a trappist. To me the flavor seems more along the lines of a Belgian Pale Ale.

Ill add another update when i pop this in a month and let you know how it tastes.

Just a couple of points I need to make based on your last post. First why was your OG so high? did you add more extract or candi sugar? second this is not meant to be a " trappist" ale I understand the confusion as the yeast used is wlp500 the style is actually a belgian triple hence the name triple threat and your color is fine for the style as they are meant to be light colored and bodied. With these 2 points please keep this in mind when reviewing. Thanks
