I know they do, but I think 3787 is a better yeast. I might split the batch and ferment half with T-58

If you are able to clone this I will kiss your ass. It is without a doubt "one" of the best beers I've had.

How did this beer turn out?

Pannepot is probably one of, if not my favorite beer. Too bad it is nearly ten dollars a bottle where I live!

To me, Pannefort tastes similar to Rochefort except for the added spices. I'm planning on trying to clone it soon.

I will probably come up with a recipe similar to yours except I would have probably reversed the hops (styrian golding for bittering, hallertauer for flavor). Also, I will probably use more belgian candi syrup (15-20%) and while 3787 is my favorite Belgian-style yeast so far, I might try T-58 as I've never used it before and I'm curious what it's like. I'll probably start with a Belgian pilsner base and add in some belgian cara-malts (caramunich maybe). I'll also do a decoction mash with sacchrification rest at about 152-153.
Primary 1: Oskar Blues Gordon Clone
Secondary 2: Pannepot Old Fishermans Ale Clone
Secondary 3: Pre-prohibition American Lager
Bottle Conditioning: Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier
Bottle Conditioning: Cherry Wheat
Bottle Conditioning: Rochefort 10 Clone
Drinking: Westvleteren 12 Clone

Hello, I have carefully analyzed your recipe and next week I will crush the clone.

I wanted to ask whether, even if not given, did the mash-out and that temperature

Thank you

Wow, this is an old thread! If you like pannepot I'd recommend the recipe given here

You can easily substitute home made syrups for the commercial ones.
