That's right, we're back for another beer from my 365 beers desk calendar.

Today we have a beautiful golden Belgin Ale...Duvel. Nice sweet, fruity flavor that's complemanted with a very nice hop butique (Boo - Kay). This all contributes to an incredibale head with exquisite lacing that slides down the side of the glass. I used a proper Stella glass too by the way!

Has anyone tried this beer?

My beer calendar also gives me a recipe every Sunday for that style of beer I had on Saturday...hence the Duvel!

This recipe will be in the "Recipes/Ingredients" Section. It is given in an PM version, I will also give reciepe in an AG & EG form too...

See you all next week for our next adventure in..." Three Hundred Sixty Five Beers!!! " echo, echo, echo...

I also have the 365 beer calendar and was looking at the Duvel recipe this morning. I was actually pretty interested in doing an AG Duvel clone based off this (I even drank a Duvel with my lunch to take some notes from) but I don't think this recipe is genuine enough for an accurate Duvel clone. While the bitterness and hops profile seems to be perfect (30ibu) the color is too dark and the malt profile will definitely be different, as Duvel is only brewed with pilsener malts and dextrose sugar. There would also be attenuation difficulties using this recipe. Duvel has an OG of 1.069, FG of 1.006, color 3.5srm, and 30ibu.

While this recipe won't be exactly like Duvel, it will get you somewhat close. A good recipe base to start from, IMO.

I have the same calendar on my desk at work. Today is the Burning River Pale Ale from a brewery in Ohio. Hmmm...I'll have to read about this infamous river fire of June 23, 1969.

I'm off today and my calendar is at work...thanks for letting me know what today's is!

Are you all saving them after you tear em off? I am...don't know why but there's cool info.

And the Sunday Recipes by Charlie Papazian are really cool as well.

Duvel - Pretty much the gold standard for the style "Belgian Golden Strong Ale"

Me, I'd rather have a Trippel or three.

Yeah, I read somewhere about the pilsner malt?? I did type it into Beersmith and the color did look a bit off...I know my JHBS has pilsen malt...does that mean I must use multi-step infussions?

But I too agree that it might get close to the orig. Nice starting point loke you said.

I've been saving the recipes to try down the line...and trying a few beers from each week...getting expensive tho!

Gonna try the Hennipen soon (probably not spelled right)

Love Duvel, one of my favorite bars in the center of Brussels had them for about 2 euros/bottle.... which was fantastic considering cheap beer was 2 euros a pint!!

Cant wait to see the recipe!!
