Huh...not sure why this is in the "stout" category, I certainly didn't put it there. Oh well. Anyway...

You can do whichever you want, really...I can't speak to the accuracy of the recipe you posted, but I will say that I derived my recipe from a couple of sources on the Belgian Babble Belt forums, one of which claimed to be the original recipe from the abbey. My changes were to add the honey, and the Maris Otter (the original recipe used all pilsner for the base grain). The caramunich and carafa III both seemed to appear in all the recipes I've seen, so I would NOT omit them. I don't think the turbinado or brown sugar are really necessary...use all candi sugar instead. Only reason I supplemented with honey (next time I'd use dextrose) is because I ordered the wrong amount of candi sugar.

The styrian goldings also seemed to be universal, so I'd not omit those. But the most important thing in this beer is the yeast, without a doubt. The 1762 is Rochefort's actual strain that they use, and it really comes out in the finished product. IMHO, my version is dead-on accurate. However, it's still cold-conditioning in the carboy right now, so I won't be able to do a side-by-side comp until it's bottled. But from what I can tell right now, it's very, very close.

Sweet, awesome comments man. I"m gonna omit the honey malt and the marris otter malt then. Just see what happens. Maybe even make another right behind it with the extra grains to compare. Nothing wrong with 10 gals of trappist ale

I've been drinking it lately. Turned out great, IMO. The key is the wyeast 1762.

I'm curious too. I plan on doing a triple for my next batch and I loved all 3 of the Rocheforts.
