Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: Rochefort Yeast (Wyeast 1762)   
Yeast Starter: None - Wyeast Smackpack   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.093   
Final Gravity: 1.020   
IBU: 25.4   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: Deep Amber/Dark Red   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 from 62-69, raised by a degree per day   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 at 55.   
Tasting Notes: Rich plum, followed by toffee and slight hints of dark currants. Amazing.   

10 lbs Pilsner Liquid Extract
1.3lbs Belgian Rock Candi Amber
1lb Carafa III
8oz Biscuit Malt
7oz Special B
6oz Aromatic Malt
1oz Chocolate Malt

Hops:
60 minutes: 1oz Northern Brewer @ 8.5AA
30 minutes: 1oz Styrian Aurora @ 8.0AA
30 minutes: 1oz Hallertau @ 3.1AA

Boil: 3.0 gallons
9.7% ABV / 8% ABW

Steep Grains. I didn't pitch a starter and the beer worked perfectly. It's rich and smooth. You can drink this young (3-4 weeks) but really deserves age (4-6+ months).

Wyeast Belgian Abby Ale (1214)

I would add a little more bittering hops to balance it - it's really quite sweet.

for the rock candi...did you just add that into the boil or did you add that into secondary? I think I'm going to use Turbinado sugar and invert that, since my lhbs doesn't have and Belgian rock candi.
