Esters is not really a concern, since we're talking about a belgian tripel. What bothered me
was sth I had red about sharp alcohol being a product of high-temperature fermentation.

I put a batch of tripel into the fermenter yesterday. Not able to cool it as much as I wanted,
I managed to get it down to 86 F in order to pitch the yeast. It has happened to me before and
I thought ...

For a 5 gallon batch with a 90-minute boiling time, you'll need a start boil volume of about 9

What is a no chill? Probably a moot point as yesterday I treated myself to a wort chiller.It's
a technique that started in Australia where you pour the boiling wort into plastic containers,

I guess you'd have to make a very low volume, very high density wort and add it to the main
fermenter.That's what I'm talking about too. Of course he'll be using the same gluten-free
materials he used...

Happened to me to, but after bottling. I primed 13L of hefeweizen with about 150g of raw cane

Excellent answer! I'm going to do it this way, changing only the yeast type, where I have
chosen to use the Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager. Thank you very much!

I'm reviving this topic. Could you suggest an all-grain or partial-mash clone recipe for this
beer? I'm mainly concerned about the hops. Should I just use German hops like Tettnanger I'll
