Everyone has convinced me. This is the next beer I'll brew!! I just hope my homebrew shop has everything I need this weekend or I'll be really disappointed!

Definitely worth the effort. My first try was a little off so I didn't oak it. It tastes good carbed up. The second batch is working its magic and will be a heavyweight for sure. It will require some extensive aging I believe. Good luck. I can't wait to bottle in a few weeks!

Let me know how it turns out! What do you think happened with your first batch? I can't decide what temperature to mash this one at. The posts kind of have a wide range to go on.

I missed my OG by .01 or so. It was my first AG batch and I didnt mash properly. The second is great and goes to bottle Sunday or Monday.

I am going to bottle this beer. Any opinions on if I should add new yeast after such a long fermentation?

I would go towards the low end. When I remake this I'll do 149 to go after a drier finish.

But again, I didn't add corn sugar or carapils, so it's not a controlled experiment.

Yup, low end like 149 with the corn sugar at least, skip the Carapils if you prefer. I like the Carapils personally, but to each their own.

It can't hurt, and will ensure a good carbonation in a fairly hostile, alcoholic environment. That's what Allagash does!

Thanks to you both on the mash temp recommendation. I'm making this beer today! I'm leaving in both the carapils and corn sugar to see what I get. I did change the one yeast from a WLP550 to WLP500 (Trappist Ale). I want the fruity notes left. Hopefully that still meshes well with the Ardennes yeast.
