Yeah the base beer recipe is as follows (sorry I dont know how to professionally post recipes from Beer Tools Pro onto the site) but here is goes for a 10 gallon batch.
11 pounds Pale Malt
11 pounds Pils Malt
4 pounds Vienna Malt
2.5 pounds Crystal 40L
1 Pound Carafa Special III (crushed in a coffee grinder to a fine pulp and added at the end of the mash for color)
2 oz Perle at 45 minutes (25 IBU's)
Large starter with White Labs WLP530 (Abbey Ale)
With this recipe I had an O.G. of 1.080.
After primary the belgian yeast took it down to 1.014.
I will be adding Lacto and Pedio sometime soon as well as bottle dregs over the months while it ages.
I got the barrel from http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/Tut...Categories.bok
. I would easily buy another barrel from them.
