This is the colour of the beer before bottling it.

Here's mine. I was very surprised at how strong the beer is. My initial gravity readings had to have been WAY off. No doubt mine turned out over 10% as you can taste the phenols. It reminds me of Belgium Tripple. Great strong flavor but mild on the hops. I guess the good thing is Im not drinking that much of it at a time....a pint or so and I know I've been drinking for sure. Fermintation stopped around the 10 day mark. After sitting in the keg for another 10 days it cleared quite well but that may not be evident in the picture. I converted this recipe to partial mash.

Yes, it is! It's the first time I've blown an airlock on my 6.5 gallon glass primary- bad combination of high volume and a crazy voracious yeast...oh well I got the opportunity to rig my first blowoff (at 4am) and it works pretty well. Rigging might be an exaggeration- my siphon hose fit nicely in the plug for my airlock.
I was pretty excited about this beer until the incident, but I'm cautiously optimistic at this point. I will definitely report back. Thanks for posting the recipe.
