Had Dragonmead's Final Absolution again over the weekend. That's one fine brew. I'm going to have the give the clone a try in the near future.

Well, at least no one tried to argue that a 9% beer can't be ready to drink in 30 days. I feel a lot better now.

I'll be bottling this soon and letting it sit for another couple of months. Looking forward to it.

Here's a little bit more about this beer in case anyone's interested.

Final Absolution Belgian Style Trippel
Dragonmead's signature product! This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma. O.G. 1.085, ABV 8.5%

The info above is from their website and HERE is a more detailed AG recipe I found online. It's worth pointing out the the OG in the recipe is different than the OG stated on their site. Then again, the description lists the ABV as 8.5% but their beer menu says it's 10%.

For those not familiar with Dragonmead, they've been around since about 1997. They're located a notably nondescript building in Warren, a suburb Northeast of Detroit. Inside is a comfy pub atmosphere and a surprising number--usually 40 or so--of beers on tap, including their signature brew Final Absolution.

Brewing this today

Would you guys suggest 3 weeks in primary, 3 weeks in secondary, then a month or more to carb up and age. (I keg)

All depends on how it ferments, I would get it out of the primary as soon as you can. 10 to 12 days should be good. Then move to secondary. You really need to get it aged for about 2 months. Further, I did notice it condition out with a smoother taste after sitting in the keg for about 2 weeks.

Yes, this is correct about Dragonmeads site, I have personally been there many times! I love the environment.

As far as your comment about being 8.5% and 10%, the first recipe was 8.5% then dragonmead redid it to 10%. Where this beer truly shines if you ask me.

@30 days you can drink it, and it's good still. But no way is it done and refine to how you would want it at day60+.

I kegged mine at day32, and it was drinkable after a week sitting in the keg under pressure in the kegrator. But it most definitely matured into a better beer after day60. I guess you can say i went with a cold conditioning, similar to letting something lager in the fridge...

Also, my LHBS only has 1 WLP500, so I could just make like a 2 liter starter and pitch it after a couple days right??
Keep me posted on this All Grain version!!! I have yet to try it out...

Haven't made the AG version, just happened to come across it online one day. The notes do say, "This is Dragonmead's 90 gallon recipre, scaled down to 12.5 gallons. ". But I have no idea if that's actually true.
