Tank 7 (clone-ish)

I enjoy Tank 7 and contacted the brewery with my recipe hoping for some more info. To my surprise they responded quickly with percentages and mash schedule so I came up with this recipe.... I am currently in the middle of switching to electric (also have a newborn at home) so I hope for spring when I can actually brew this beer. I decided to post this after seeing the amount of interest (full PM mailbox) when I mentioned their email response when I inquired about the recipe. Yeast, yes the yeast- I was told its a house Belgium Strain; some others hinted it was similar to an Abby ale yeast. These are just a few I thought of

Spontaneous fermentaion? I LOVE IT!

Nah but seriously it looks tasty, I think your estimated ABV is a little high though. more like 7.6%?

It is a house yeast. Check out the profile of various Belgian style yeast, and pick one that has the characteristics you like.

Thanks "theschick" my mind has been pretty absent with the new addition to the family.

The yeast is a house strain.
I sifted though all the posts about Tank 7..... Somewhere someone talked to one of the brewers and they said the closest strain would be an Abbey Ale- If I remember correctly. When I contacted them I specifically asked about the stain used as I thought it was a real Saison yeast.

Looking at your mash schedule... are the temps listed the target temp for the step or the temp of the water to be added? I'm assuming the former, but wanted to double check. Really looking forward to trying this brew.
