Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: WLP570   
Yeast Starter: recommended   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.070   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @ 68F   
Additional Fermentation: Recommended 2+ months to age   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 68F   

2.5gallons @ 155 - 15 minutes
9oz Crystal 60L
9oz caramunich
1/4lbs biscuit malt
1.5oz moravian black

60minute boil
1can Lyles Golden Syrup (1lbs)
10lbs Pale Extract
1lb Dark Belgian Candi Sugar

60min
1.25oz Styrian Golding

15min
1/8tsp anise spice
.5oz styrian golding
.25oz bittering orange peel

5min
1/8tsp anise spice
.25oz saaz

WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale Yeast
From East Flanders, versatile yeast that can produce light Belgian ales to high gravity Belgian beers (12% ABV). A combination of fruitiness and phenolic characteristics dominate the flavor profile. Some sulfur is produced during fermentation, which will dissipate following the end of fermentation.
Attenuation: 73-78%
Flocculation: Low
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-75F
Alcohol Tolerance: High

There are "unibroue" yeast clones out there, but they are seasonal. This yeast seemed like a pretty good match for what I was shooting for.

I made monster sized variant of this beer that recently scored a 40,42,44 at the AHA October National Club only Competition in Michigan, and won a gold medal at the Belgian table at 2008 splitrock beer festival.

I have all of the stuff for this EXCEPT the anise spice. They have the anise stars and the anise seeds at my local. Are those close?

I brewed sirsloop's recipe for Quad Pistoles 2 days ago and it looks epic. However I forgot to add orange peel, do you think I should throw some in the primary after it's done fermenting?

Also, how much corn sugar did you use for priming?
