Default All-Grain - Pink Elephant (Delirium Tremens clone)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP570
Yeast Starter: 1L
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: S-04
Batch Size (Gallons): 3
Original Gravity: 1.072
Final Gravity: 1.006
IBU: 22 (Rager)
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 4 (SRM)
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 (see notes)
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 32 deg
Tasting Notes: On-the-money clone for this award winning Belgian Strong.

Ingredients
-----------
Beet Sugar 1.00 lb, Sugar, Other
Pilsener (Belgian) 6.50 lb, Grain, Mashed

Styrian Golding 0.75 oz, Pellet, 60 minutes
Saaz 0.50 oz, Pellet, 15 minutes

Coriander Seed 7.20 grams, Spice, 10 min
Ginger 2.40 grams, Spice, 10 min
Paradise 2.40 grams, Spice, 10 min


Notes
-----
Recipe is from a Belgian who supposedly knew the brewmaster at Huyghe.

10 min @ 125F mash-in, 45 min @ 144F, 30 min @ 158F, 172F mashout. I'm frankly skeptical of the effectiveness of this mash schedule, but hey, it's how Huyghe does it, I'm told. 90 minute boil. 7 day ferment (pitch both yeasts), starting at 67F and allowed to rise as yeast desired. 14 day lager at 30F, followed by a 21 day warm bottle condition at 76F.

Yes. 2nd batch warm conditioning now which I'll be submitting for my LHBS annual competition in a month.

How does it compare and do you have one for NOEL? I enjoy this much more than Tremens.

Spice and color are dead-on. In my first brewing back in the fall, fermentation topped out at 74 so it didn't attenuate as well as I'd have liked. FG was 1.010 on that batch. I wrapped the fermenter in a blanket after 48 hours this time and it hit 82. FG was 1.006.

Sorry, I've never been in Belgium during the holidays so I haven't had a Noel. My bud in A'dam tells me it's a split between Tremens and Nocturnum. I'm not a big fan of Nocturnum.

I've had Nocturnum but don't recall the flavor. I just know I like the Noel. I can find it in southern OH, just had a bottle 2 weekends ago in Athens OH, surely you can find it in Colorado!

Well, it's seasonal. Huyghe only brews it during the holidays. I could probably special order through my liquor store...

I understand it's seasonal, I guess it's probably because I live in a very non-beer savvy area so the bottles just stay available longer after the season.

You can find Noel at BevMo. Its actually a pretty good beer. Not too strong tasting considering how potent it is.
