You'll have to come to ireland to taste it, sending you a bottle will make my name added to the terrorist list due to the potency of that brew

Default 90 min mash?


I just got back from a Belgium brewery tour beercation and want more (than I brought home). So this looks easy enough to brew. Why did u do a 90 minute mash though? Last spring I did an ABT12 from AHS and got 3rd place at our club (BURP) meeting. Still have a few corked bottles left.

I did the 90 minute mash to increase attenuation. I would actually do an overnight mash if I did this brew again...which I will!

Brewed the trappist in 2 batches. My mash tun is too small to do 6 gallons of such a strong beer.
Was a bit low on efficiency, too much water on the first batch but the second was spot on.
Combined i should have an OG of 1.092 which is still good enough. It is bubbling away nicely. Can't wait to taste the finish product.
Thanks for the recipe.

Awesome, let us know how it turns out. If I were you, after you reach about 1.035 or so start ramping up the heat gradually if you can. 75-80 is not too warm.

I opened a 4 months old bottle of the trappist last night, and it was spectacular.
It improved tremendously. I tested it a couple times after a month in the bottle and it wasn't that great but the one I had last night was really good.
Glad I forgot it and have a bunch of bottle left.

This recipe goes back on my redo list. Thanks.

Default Visit to Ireland


making a pilgramige to Dublin in late July. Going to visit the holyland for a second time. Not sure where Cork is located, but if you are near Dublin, perhaps we can get together for a real Guinness.

will do, not sure we will have a vehicle. I think our planner (daughter) is going to rely on public transport. We used buses and boats last time through.
