    I started researching some things this morning and here's what I've found: I'm not sure if
    you're research included BLAM but here it is for reference.From BLAM: It's a combination of two
    yeasts. Could...

    It was the Belgian Candy syrup not rocks. I try as best as possible to stick to what BLAM says
    when brewing Belgians. I've only used the rocks once andI don't use the rocks unless their is

    here is the finished product. I think it needs additional bottle conditioning mature and
    bring out the complexities over time. Probably a good 3-4 months. I'm trying to go through the
    LHBS to get so...

    I'm glad everything went well! I'm really curious to see how WLP 530 does for your beer. I'm
    pretty certain that Wyeast 3522 isn't the correct yeast for primary. My second batch is dry
    hopping at the ...

    Brew day was Friday and I was really pleased with how smoothly everything went. I did learn
    that my tun doesn't hold heat to well over 90 minutes outside in the winter. Its did just fine

    I am going to do a partial mash of this. I have been coping AG recipes and matching up the %
    usage as a way to match the recipe. I recently brewed a Belgian dubbel using 1 lb of amber

    Where did you look for star anise? Most grocery stores should have that in the spice aisle. If
    you're in a bigger city you could try an Indian marketI'm actually going to hit some local
    grocery stores...

    I'm going for something close to this on Tuesday. I'm using the WLP530 yeast and leaving off
    the Flaked Barley and I couldn't get Star Anise. Here's what I've got it put together on Brew
    Target. 5 gal...
