I had one in the pub yesterday and it made me miss it. So i will be brewing this in the next few weeks.
It's one of my favorite leffe with the vieille cuvee.

Just finished brewing this one again and got spot on gravity of 1074. This gets better with practice.
Fortunately I have started building a pipeline so that I can be patient enough when i bottle it.
This hobby is worst than crack. Hello My name is Clinton and I'm a homebrewer addict.

If you are talking about the National Homebrew club competition. I will enter a few beers myself but not the radieuse as I haven't brew it yet again. I'll brew it next week end. I'm trying to get to the result party if my work let me.
If I do we should get a beer.
Good luck.

I brewed this recipe Sunday (two days ago), except I added another ounce of hallertauer and used turbinado instead of belgian candy sugar.

I was a little confused about the volumes- mash with 17 quarts for roughly 13 lbs of grain, and sparge with another 17 quarts was a bit more than I'm used to doing, and I ended up with more volume than I'm accustomed to.

And, that Abbey Ale yeast is ferocious! Fermentation had begun before I went to bed (<6hrs) and this morning about 4am KABLOOEY, my airlock popped and yeast sprayed all over our coat closet/fermentation chamber. I think it was a combination of volume (it made probably 6gallons) and that yeast. I pitched it at 70 and it came up and stayed around 72...anyways, I rigged a blowoff hose and am hopeful this one will still turn out.

That yeast is savage indeed. Knowing this full well this time I brewed only 24 liters and fermented in a 33l bucket, yet the airlock still blew up and the yeast painted some of the walls.

As for the water volumes, as I mentioned in the original post, it is not my recipe and I copied it onto this forum. The first time I brewed it I followed the instructions to the letter and the beer was a match for the original one. This time I used my regular water rules 3 Liters per Kilo ( sorry I use the metric) then top off as needed in the sparge. Will see how that change the beer in a couple months.

Keep me posted on your result. Thanks.
