Looks pretty sweet I ran across this one researching a Tripel recipe.

With the 1# of Wheat in there, does it still come out fairly clear? I'm not expecting crystal clear since I'm going to bottle condition my tripel but I don't want it to look like a Hefe either.

I just brewed a very slightly modified version of this today. The hydrometer sample tasted wonderful. I forgot to take a look at what kind of efficiency the OP got, and adjust accordingly, but I ended up around 1.071. I gave it a long thin mash, so I expect it to finish pretty dry. There were a few modifications, but it shouldn't be too different.

7.75lb Belgian pale and 3lb Marris Otter instead of 7.5lb and 3.25lb respectively. I also used a little extra Hallertauer at the first addition instead of 1.5oz EKG. The EKG I got were a little stonger than called for, but not enough to completely reduce it to 1oz.

All in all, I think it should be a good one. This is my second tripel this week. The other is loosely based on La Fin du Monde.

Wow, after only a week, it's dropped from 1.060 to about 1.010. It was likely a little carbonated, so maybe a little higher. I added the candi sugar today. It should be 1.073 overall OG. There was such a thick sticky krausen head in the fermenter, this is going to be good I think.

Evan, What was your experience with fusels and this yeast? I've had and heard differing results with this one. Anyone else have any potent alcohol tastes with the ferm temps in the lower 70's?

Brewed this earlier in the month, and it just hit final gravity in primary. The hydro sample tasted damn amazing, and I'm racking it to secondary with oak cubes soaked in red wine. I'm really excited for this beer.
