Mainebrew - Does it taste like the original? I just had on Monday for the first time and was amazing. Just tried the Kate recipe (had all the issues with sparging as posted). This appears to be next inline now!!!

Yeah it's delish! Try blending it with fresh tripel for the most authentic taste. Otherwise it's more Jim beam up front.

Anything Noble would be ok. Hallertau would be fine.

The key is really hitting the IBU's, more than anything I think.

How much Jim Beam did you soak the oak cubes in and for how long? I would have to say this is my favorite triple.
Sorry just saw your link. I assume just enough beam to cover the cubes in a bowl?

OMG can't believe I found a recipe for this. A great beer. Could you convert to extract for me, I'm a newby. When you said to blend it with fresh triple what do you mean and Is there a better way to get the same taste?

Thanks
Ayup!
