I'm sorry never brewed extracts but I believe that there are software that can convert it for you.
Good luck.

After more than 2 weeks, the bubble have just about stopped coming out of the bubbler. I did a gravity test and it is at 1013. Is it ready to go in the bottle?

It will be ready to be bottled when the gravity stop dropping, Altough you are getting very close to the bottom of it. Just take another reading in a day or so and then it is still 1013 go ahead and bottle.

Having said that that beer will improve in quality the longer you wait. I usually wait 5 weeks for that one before bottling it. I know how hard it is too wait when you doing your first beer.

How did it taste by the way?

It taste quiet nice but nothing like leffe radieuse. I guess that will come with time.

I'll wait till next week end before deciding about bottling or not.

I tasted it again to see if I wanted to bottle it this week end. I went down a little bit about 1011 but the taste has improved a lot in just 5 days. I guess I'll wait another week.

With such a beer, a little patience will provide some great rewards. I usually don't bottle it until the 5 weeks and then wait at least a month to taste it.
That beer became truly great after 4 months in the bottle.
May the patience be with you.

Couldn't wait anymore. I bottled it today. Tasted quiet nice, can start to recognise the leffe radieuse now. Can't wait to taste the finished product.
I managed to get 53 pints of it.

Thanks for the recipe.

Glad you like it. Good luck with the patience before you get to drink it. Try to wait at least 3 weeks. Let me know how it turns out.

Im going to brew this this weekend. I'll be converting it to partial mash. I'll post my progress later.

Good luck with it. I'll interested to find out the recipe for a partial mash. There was a chap that asked for it recently. But I had no clue.
Let me know how it turns out.
