I probably should have called it Roche9 to be more accurate since it's between the eight and ten in ABV. I actually prefer this one over the other recipe I posted.

Tell me more about how you came across this. Is this your clone or did you find it somewhere? How does it stack up to the real 10?! I'd love to do this beer. :D

I started off following the basic guidelines in BLAM and modified it from there. The flavor is quite close to Roche 10 but the ABV is a little bit low at a mere 10.78%. It's not a true clone since I didn't use Roche yeast but I love it the way it turned out. With the temp creeping down, I'll be making this again soon.

Great, I've got BLAM and I've done some things with ispiration from there but never an actual clone. I think I'll do this as a great winter beer. Thanks for the info. :mug:

No problem. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

JESUS! three pounds of invert sugar? where in the hell do i get that? that's alot! :D

eddie 09-21-2008 10:34 PM

I use homemade invert sugar that I cooked to a deep red and crystallized and stored in the freezer. Candi sugar would work just fine as well, though, but it'll cost a buttload more.

eschatz 09-21-2008 10:38 PM

yeah, no joke! Thanks for the help.

eddie 09-21-2008 10:46 PM

Here's a tutorial on making your own invert sugar. The only thing I do different is I use two teaspoons of lemon juice per pound of sugar and let it set for a half hour before cooking.

Making your own Belgian Candi Sugar or Syrup
