Couldn't you just make one with a screw on lid (or any lid) that had a D-loop on it that could be dropped in and then you could just use a coat hanger to fish it out.

Bee Rye-it RyePA

I just brewed this one yesterday. It turned out pretty big and I am hoping that the honey malt and honey additions will help balance out the hops and alcohol.

I will update this as it goes along....

Rear Tyre has kind-of the same bready, biscuit nose with the very faint hop smell that Fat Tire has. If I had to say, I would say that Rear Tyre has even more of a malty nose than the original.

Looking for a good tripel recipe

I love a good tripel. Brother David's from Anderson Valley is a prime example of what I am going for.

Anyone have a great recipe? I am able to do all-grain or extract.
