Did it right now! Let's see what happens!
Thanks for the help and I'll let you know how it worked

Just bottled the Leffe, I was worried about the OG but it ended up at 1014 like the recipes said.
So it has .7 higher abv. I can't tell any difference from the sample I drank, it feels as good as the other ones. Now it is another patience game not to drink it too quickly. I'll try not to open one for at least a month.

Nice, I don't think the .7 higher abv will have much of an impact. Enjoy it.
I'll trying it again next week end.

I've never had the Raddieuse before, the local bottle shop only has the blond and a brown...but last night I had a Kwak for the first time and I was very surprised how similar it tasted to this recipe. I have two swing-top quarts of this and a couple 22s left, it's making me anxious!

1 year later and it's still on my "to brew" list.
Next month I hope to do it so that it's ready for Christmas.

I got a chance to brew this past Friday, and started primary on Saturday morning.

I modified the recipe to work with BIAB (i don't own a mash tun) and the process went fairly smoothly. I lowered my amounts just a little too much so my OG was 1.070. A little low, but I'm sure this will work out just fine.


This is before the hops and sugars were added.

Here she is at 2 days into fermentation:

Added a little DAP since I was using distilled water.

I'm likely going to let it rest for 4 months in bottle and open it up around christmas. Thanks for the recipe, it tasted great as wort, and the fermentor smells amazing. I am really looking forward to drinking this one.
