  • I had knocked around giving it a go for a number of years. A coworker a few years back told me about his setup, and I ended up going out and getting one of my own. My first beer was the partial grain/extract Chimay blue clone recipe here on HBT. I jumped into all-grain a couple of beers in, and still create/tweak/frankenstein my own versions of recipes. I just started ramping up to 10 gallon batches.

    Back to the jasmine cost and sourcing thing,If you're going for jasmine aroma, I'd avoid the
    expensive pearl teas. In fact, I'd avoid all teas altogether, unless tea flavored beer is your
    goal. :)I wo...

    Is there a reason you can't just put in all of the honey on the front end? The yeast reaches
    its saturation point regardless of when it is added, right?

    No need to pitch more yeast at bottling, there will be plenty still in circulation going from
    the primary at 4 weeks. Priming sugar, and you're good to go. I've done this recipe 4 times,
    each one a li...

    I love Augustijn. Wish I could find a clone recipe for it.

  • Posted in thread: Augustijn Ale - recipe request? on 01-15-2013 at 07:42 PM
    I really like Augustijn. A lot. Almost as much as Chimay blue label/Grand Reserve. I think it's
    got a unique and delicious flavor that I enjoy moreso than many others in the in the

    Ok - new to kegging here, and trying to compensate for some oversights. I had read some threads
    on force carbing, but it never occurred to me that the temps discussed were at fridge temps,
    not basemen...

    No need to worry about the wine yeast - it is just intended to be killed off in the boil as a
    nutrient for the live, active Belgian yeast that you put in later. Nice to have, not necessary.
    I usually ...

    BDSM, yes indeed. ;)

    Anyone? Looks good? Glaring problems? I was thinking of a brew 'in the vein of' (not
    necessarily a clone of) Chimay blue/Grand Reserve.
