Gotcha - this is why I asked. I still think that if you are pleased with the beer, you might want to give it a dedicated thread.

For those of you looking for a PM, I tried this one very vigorous ferment I would just leave out the berrys if your want a Belgian Blonde

I think this is a stupid question but here i go anyway.

I just racked this beer into 5 pounds of peaches in my secondary and I had to have a taste!

And it did not tast sweet or all that good at all. I know it is not supposed to taste that good but it tasted really alcoholic and not like to original at all. Should i worry or do I have a case of the noob impatience.

Thanks!

Of Patience and Bottle Conditioning, chapter 2, verse 1.062: "fear not if thy young beer tasteth green for the passage of a fortnight shall maketh thy beer yummy and the passage of two fortnights shall maketh it yummier still." ***

*** = not an actual quote from Revvy's Of Patience essay.

I kid. It will be fine or most likely awesome. I just gave my wife a carbonator capped hydrometer sample to tide her over and its certainly no where near as good as the aged bomber brewed last October.

Revvy doing this beer again yes i like it this much. Even the bartender at my local watering hole was pleasantly surprised.

Was wondering why you are holding the mash for 45' only. On most belgian beers with pilsen the mash is held twice as long. Just curious.

On a side note on the second try of this beer I made a mistake and ordered dark munich instead of light munich. As expected it was darker but also rather nice once in the bottle. I had a bottle of it yesterday after 4 months in the bottle and it turned out fantastic. Not leffish at all just different but a great beer. May try that f#%k up again soon.

Ps the vienna lager is really good to with only 2 weeks of lager.

I just tasted this as my first all grain, but only a 1 gallon trial, which was split into two half gallon secondaries, one of them over peaches, and the other as is.

Both were awesome, and will definitely brew this again, next time being the full 5 gallons.
