This yeast is a monster! Make sure to set a blow off on this one.

I let it bottle condition for four weeks at 70F which produced a nice 1/2 inch head that subsided into the beer rather quickly when served in my Orval goblet. Best served between 55-60F. Full of dark plum and raisin flavors with the coriander coming through at the end. The alcohol is a little hot but not a kick in the face. I used homemade invert sugar that I cooked to a deep red and then crystallized and stored in the freezer. Dark Candi would be fine as well.

I have another one that was intended to be a Rochefort 10 clone, too. The alcohol isn't as high as the 10 (sort of between the 8 and 10) but the flavor is spot on. I'll put that one up too.

When did you add the sugar? Flame out?
