Sorry about not responding or checking this thread for awhile. The beer turned out delicious.
The only problem is that only 3 bottles out of the entire batch ended up carbonating. That
didn't stop me ...

Sorry, it's been a long time since I've logged in to my account; hasn't stopped me from brewing
though. I would say that this like other dark Belgians seem to hit "prime" after about a year.

Looks good. I was thinking about a recipe along these lines, thinl ill give it a shot and let
you know how ti comes out. How long after bottling did you drink? When did it hit prime?Sorry,
it's been a...

I've been loosely following this thread for the past year after looking for something simple
but tasty to do with my first batch of homegrown cascades, but wanted to push the IBU's more

Thank you. Metric is no problem at all, especially when you can find converters on line
quickly. If I end up brewing this recipe or something similar, I'll post my results with a
focus on the yeast. A...

BuffaloBeer1, I can't speak for using Prior, I stepped up a culture from Pater 6. The reason I

think all the...

So if I am reading this correctly, the best chance I have for brewing a clone or something
similar to the St. B 12 is to culture yeast from the Prior. Is that correct? If so, am I better
off taking th...

Just took a gravity sample; it's at 12.1% abv after 1 week. It's tasty already. Sweet with
slight warming feeling. Hops are nice for a young beer, but will be good when they fade as
well. The yeast is...

Yes, the d-180 was Added during the last 10 min. That seemed to work great the 2 times I used
it in the Belgians beers. As far as the champagne yeast...I wasn't following exactly what the
guy was sayi...

For what it's worth, I went with the recipe below. Brewed it yesterday & it's happily
fermenting away vigorously. The plan is to primary for 4 weeks, then secondary it with 2 oz of
