My wife wanted me to try to clone North Coast Pranqster for her birthday. So I had 2 months to come up with a recipe to accomplish that and get it fermenting for the party. I found a few people talking about making this beer. They all went in different directions. I took them all plus standard Belgian Golden Strong recipes and used beer smith to make something out of lots of info from all over. To make the project fun I went and bought two 4 packs of Pranqster and harvested the yeast from 8 bottles. I built that yeast up into about a half pint of yeast and used that in one 5 gallon batch while the other I used a 1.5 liter starter and a smack pack of 1388. I probably over pitched both by a little but the beer came out great.

It's okay...I don't like to read either. I'm more of a picture guy too.
