    Great idea! I will def try this. Thanks. Did they carbonate sugars lost in the
    steeping?It carbonated fine. Like I said before; it is important to add hops at as many places
    as possible. ...

    I just drank the last of both my Belgian Dubbel and Belgian Blonde both fermented with
    Lallemand Abbaye. The dubbel was bottled in April 2015, and the blonde in June 2015, so they
    had about 7 to 9 mon...

    Golden Strong with Lallemand Abbaye update. I just transferred to the secondary today and will
    be crashing the yeast. I mashed at 150F for 60 minutes with a double batch sparge. I added 2

    Update.Bottled yesterday. Went from 1.045 (and not 1.043) to 1.011. Granted it was a SmaSh.
    Mashed a wee bit higher than I should've had. Leads me to think that attenuation is pretty much
    as advertise...

    Looks like that thread is all about the Fermentis Safbrew Abbaye, which for some reason isn't
    sold by any of the places I normally buy my yeast, so I'm trying the Lallemande/Danstar
    version. Why the o...

    Haussenbrau,i'm very intrigued by your yeast mixing as i'm thinking of doing it myself,
    likewise with t-58 and s-33. I'm hoping to make a belgian blonde/belgian strong, maybe like
    leffe, but not neces...
