Actually, I've done some readings and found some other clone recipes, they all have an OG around 1.1 so this sounds like a winner unless blitzk has a significant change. Now I just need to get a bottle of Dark Candi Sugar syrup!

Maybe blitzk would like to share his recipe for Westvleteren 12 and we can compare?
I just got a Blichmann Boilermaker w/false bottom so I'm itching to break it in and this is the first recipe I want to do!
The Belgian Candi Syrups have a ppg of 1.032: dark candi, inc.. If it's different in BeerSmith I think you can adjust it manually or add a new item with the appropriate characteristics.

Yeah, Beersmith said 1.032 which is around the same as most grains (1.030 -> 1.035)

I'm doing a Westvleteren clone and just racked to a secondary. I only have 6.5 gallon carboys so there's a bit of headspace at the top. is this going to present an oxidation problem or will enough new CO2 be created to force it out? I was in primary about 10 days. also, how long would you recommend keeping it at room temp in secondary before bottling and then how long for conditioning?

Thanks

Brandon

You will never see it at a regular beer store. You can buy it directly from the monks, on ebay and a couple places online. The only place that the monks condone sale is from them, they specifically ask for it not to be resold.

Yes, I know. There is a grey market for them and sometimes "my guy" can get interesting items. He's looking for 6, 8, and 12 but it's been a while.
