I'm of the opinion aging is always best in bulk, seems to get more character that way. If you do age for an extended period of time and then bottle condition it may be necessary to pitch a bit of new yeast at bottling time.

never saw any replies back to the people talking about using s33 with this. Has anyone used that yeast with this beer yet?

Looking forward to hearing your results. I have meter used s33 but have been looking for a dry option for standard Belgians. I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Brussels and Bruge this summer. Most of the breweries and beer bars had as their house ale, a crisp dry blonde ale with just a hint of the "typical" peppery and phenolic Belgian yeast signature. I've read the term "firmly hopped" in several BJCP style guidelines. But I didn't understand how that translated into a balanced beer until I tasted some of those beers fresh from the brewery.

This recipe looks like something I could translate into a beer like that and I would like to use a dry yeast if I can. I am about to step up to 10 gal batches. I am considering making a smaller gravity version of this recipe and using s33 for half and the new danstar belle Saison for half.

This beer is fermenting away VERY nicely! Wake up today(day 2) to find 9 liters of Krausen and foam!

Added 1 more pound of pilsner for lost efficency with BIAB. Scaled the recipe down to size of my pot. Increased the mash time to 85 minutes 65 c, and 10 minutes 75 c. Boiled 90 minutes. Ended up with 17,5 l of worth(supposed to be 14,9l)
Og was 1.69. Wow! Efficency!

This is my first All grain brew. Mash calculators say to use a total of 10.04 gallons of water. 4.32 gallons for the mash and 5.72 for the sparge. It's my first AG brew, so, I am a little confused. Any toughts?
