    Tested another one right now, sure it's already good but I think some age is worth wait! I
    think I prefer rochefort 10 clone (from csi Web site) despite I had poor attenuation on this
    one!But I also p...

    FANTASTIC! I've handed out a couple of bottles to beer buds. All have enjoyed it and two
    commented that it may be the best quad they've ever had. One asked if he could come over next
    brew day to watch...

    Got mine transferred to secondary over the weekend. Was wondering if you all think this is too
    much headspace for a prolonged secondary? Due to the excessive blow off there is about .5
    gallons to 1 ga...

    Since I'll be brewing this in a months time I have a few points I'd like to have clarified. The
    recipe/PDF on the CSI website lists Cara 8, yet 001/002 says Cara 45. Which ºL cara malt should
    I shop f...

    Although I made the Westy on September 9, 2014, I didn't bottle it until December 19, 2014.
    Thus it has now bottle aged for over a year. I have tried this beer several times since
    bottling, but just t...

    Does anyone know what is a good water profile for this recipe or for a BDSA in general? What
    water adjustments do you make, if any?The published municipal water profile for Vleteren has
    been cited, (a...

    Quick .02 on using more vigorous strains for this clone. You can blast the FG down by using
    them but the ester/phenol profiles will be different. That's speaking from a clone only
    viewpoint. That bein...

    very nice.. I scaled back the recipe to an og of 1.078, but basically the same.Just had one at
    4 months in the bottle and it is great. I will definitely age this one and it will be an
    awesome brew. I ...
