Default Belgian Style Winter Warmer



Here is the Belgian Style Winter Warmer Recipe I just threw down on.... Should be exhilerating!

Black Blizzard Belgian

7# Briess Liquid Malt Extract
8 oz Belgian Aromatic
6 oz Special B
6 oz Chocolate Malt
6 oz Crystal 80L
2 oz Black Malt
1# Dark Belgian Candi Sugar

60minute - .5 oz Magnum
30minute - .5 oz Willamette
15minute - .5 oz Willamette
15minute - 1/8 oz ground allspice
15minute - 1/8 oz ground nutmeg
15minute - spice satchel including:
- 1.5 oz Sweet Orange Peel
- 1/8 oz star anise
- 1/8 oz clove
- 3x cinnamon stick

WLP 500 - Belgian Trappist Ale Yeast

Delta OG was 1.061 and the initial flavor is sweet and spicy.... should be a good one.

I brewed a beer similar to this a few weeks ago. However, I was concerned about how much of the spice flavor I would actually get throwing that into the brew kettle. I'm going with a tea at bottling time instead. How well do you feel those flavors are going to come through in your final product?

I can smell them quite a bit off of the boil. Tasting the product pre-pitch it was awesome, the spice was more aromatic than on the palate and seemed to be smoothed by the orange peel. I was concerned as well; I wanted a big splash of intense flavor but not to overpower and that's why I used a hop sock for only 15 minutes through flameout. I think this achieved the goal appropriately but of course only time will tell.

Taste the beer after primary and toss in more spices if needed.

Bottling this weekend and brainstorming up some ideas to pitch on top of the cake. I have most of these ingredients at home. I might go get some fresh orange peel & cinnamon and give this one a try.
