Tasting Notes: Awesome, light bodied, belgian ale.   

I have brewed in upwards of 30 batches, and I think the consenus is that this my best recipe. The pilsen/oat base just gives this beer a nice light, bready taste that is just great. The honey adds slightly floral/herbal background and helps dry it out. I fermented this beer cooler and a little longer to try and suppress the belgiany yeast character a little and it worked perfectly. This beer has the color and body character similar to Hoeggarden but with much more flavor and is a much more interesting drink....plus it packs a nice punch.



10 pounds pilsen
2 pound rolled oats (cereal mash)
1 pound wheat
2 pounds fresh north dakota clover honey added at ten minutes
1 oz magnum AA10% at 90

For a six gallon batch

OG = 1.062
FG = 1.010
mash at 149
boil fof 90
Chimay yeast ( 1/2 gallon starter)
Ferment straight up at 65

Good looking recipe! I think I am going to try this with some WLP530, as well as pearle and saaz hops that I have on hand!
