    Not sure if this is helpful, but I've used 1388 for about 8 batches and 570 once. None of these
    batches tasted like Duvel (which is probably my favorite commercial beer). However, I did a
    batch with W...

    Duvel SUCKS. one of the most popular Belgian Golden Strong Ale's (very similiar to trippels)

    I've used this yeast for about 12 batches, and it is always slow to start in comparison to all
    other strains I've used (even with a starter). I usually ferment all my Belgians in the 65-70

    I've used this yeast on three batches and they have all turned out great. These batches were
    smoother and maybe slightly dryer than W1214, but I am horrible at describing taste (just know
    that it tast...

    "Gott Mit Uns" means "God's with us". It was the motto of the Prussian kings, and was on the
    belt buckles of the regular German army in WWII - the SS used the motto "Meine Ehre heißt
