Belgian Tripel Aging
I brewed a belgian tripel on 4/15 and just kegged on Friday.
10 lb pilsner
2 lb munich
2oz saaz at 60
1.5 styrian at 5
2lb caramel sugar
trappist high gravity yeast
This is the strongest beer I've made yet and tasting it off of the keg, the alcohol is very apperent. The flavor in general is great, but that "hot" quality is a little offputing.
Anyone experienced this before, and can offer input on how much more aging this might require?
I read that someone else had a 10% beer and two weeks was enough for this to fade...
My last tripel was only 6.81, and after 65 days, was delicious.
This beer probably needed 2 more weeks in secondary, to let it mellow.
I think it's too bad that everybody's decided to turn on drugs, I don't think drugs are the problem. Crime is the problem. Cops are the problem. Money's the problem. But drugs are just drugs.
