How's the Rochefort?
 
gio,

How's this Rochefort 10 turning out so far? Rochefort 8 and 10 are among our favorite Belgians.

I'm going to bottle it next weekend. I tasted it recently and it tastes great. Its definitely getting more mellow and more complex as it conditions. I'll post again once its bottled and carbonated and I have a chance to compare it with a real Rochefort 10. The big unknown is whether I used too much (or not enough) caramel malts and I'll have a better idea in a few weeks.

any updates into this one? was thinking about throwing in a half pound of date sugar to primary after the krausen. Thoughts?

Well dont want to thread jack but I just pitched my own Rochefort clone!

OG: 1.095 (With the second D-180 addition)
FG: ???

14# Pils
2# D-180 Candi Syrup
1# D-90 Candi Syrup
1# Wheat, Flaked
.2# Special B
Wyeast 1762 Yeast
1.5 oz. Styrian Goldings- 90 min (3.5%)
1 oz. Hallertau- 30 min. (3.8%)

Pitch at 77 degrees F and let it run rampent! In fact right through the airlock. Smell is quite amazing as is the taste! Saving 1 # D-180 for after Krausen and speaking of which, had it form in an hour. Some yeast cant wait! So far from what I have had out the top of the airlock it is quite good!

Im curious to hear how these turn out.

Working on a Dubble recipe
 
That's alot of sugar! How did these turn out?

rocco336 08-07-2011 07:04 AM

Well aside from the fact that my blowoff tube went crazy for 6 days just about, its coming along nicely! Lots of dark fruits in the nose along with some alcohol detecable- hell at 82 deg F I would be shocked if it werent detectable! Going to take gravity reading tommorow and transfer to a slightly cooler place (my closet from the garage). Also removing the blowoff tube for standard airlock and taking a little sample. So far it can be summarized by a verryyy vigorous fermentation with lots of pleasing aroma and a big mess.

Hey

How did you do your grains?

rocco336 09-19-2011 02:25 PM

Ground em in a coffee grinder across all the range of particle sizes but mostly coarse. Man that was not fun grinding up all that grain a few oz at a time...
