The brew is fermenting. Pretty smooth brew day. My Og was a little lower than yours at 1.074. Now the wait begin.

I just brewed a Jamil's dubbel 2 days ago and his recipe looks almost exactly the same. Same malts and quantity just for 6 gal batch so it came out at SG 1.070. I used 3522 though is what I had on hand and Styrian Goldings instead. Can't wait to sample it.

I bet, I guess it would be pretty nice with styrian goldings too. Which is the main hops in the Leffe Blonde. May the patience be with you.

it is a great brew, mine is almost 2 months in the bottle and it still getting better. I'm going to have to brew it again soon as i'm running out of it.

Mine has been fermenting very strongly. The lid of the bucket opened a few time and it threw up like a drunken teenager. It seems to be coming down right now. I hope the beer is ok with the lid having been opened.

I have had the same problem each time i brewed it and except for once the beer turn up great. You should use a blow off tube where one end i in the bucket and the other end in a sanitizer solution. That should prevent the mess. A blow off tube cannot cope with rigourous fermentation.
