Dubbel Down
Here's a dubbel recipe I got down after a couple shots. I prefer a more mild raisin flavor in my dubbel and keep the overall beer simple and easily drinkable (first recipe had 0.75# of Special B and that was all I tasted in the beer).
Homemade sugar using the infamous DAP technique found on the boards.

It got a 3rd place in a local homebrew comp with the main detractor being oxidization likely picked up in bottling.

Fermented very high. Had a small starter. Fermented at 68F for 24 hour then taken upstairs where it was 75F-80F for over a week (though it finished within 3 days).

Tasting before fully carbonated: Delicious. Nice belgian yeast profile. Mild, but known dark fruit flavor. Easy drinking and smooth.

How many of these would one need to down before boarding a Vogon Destructor vessel?

Nice color and head on the picture - thanks for posting.
