My attempt at cloning the Stoudt Tripel I really enjoy. IMO, it should be termed a
quad coming in at around 10%, hence the name. Mostly developed based upon info from
their website (Stoudtsbeer.com). Still in process so no word on how close the final
is going to turn out compared to the actual, but the color is pretty well on (maybe a touch light - could
add more Munich dark or maybe just an inkling of Crystal 40L - .25lb or so?) and nose
is similar. All critical data points (gravity, IBU, etc.) are pretty spot-on. Not sure about the wheat, but
it mentioned they use some time of wheat in the recipe, so I went with normal malted white wheat -
maybe they were referring to unmalted or some other type of wheat. I don't know, so I just went with it...

I fermented this mostly on a cake of Abbey Ale yeast from a prior batch
(read need blowoff) and its still going. I plan to primary 1 month, secondary a couple
weeks, then keg most of it. I will bottle some and cork (hopefully) for aging, but to
be safe I plan on adding some Trappist High Gravity Yeast in case the Abbey Ale is pooped
out and unable to carbonate the beer. Also, I may just add the Trappist High Gravity, and carbonate
in the keg naturally - 'keg' condition if you will.
