    Belgian Dark Strong Ale Westvleteren 12 Clone - Multiple Award Winner

    I brewed a 5 gallons batch on March 17, 2019, bottled May 27, 2019, then put the cases in the basement, and forgot about them until Thanksgiving 2020. So that's about 1.5 years of bottle aging. I cooled down a bottle the day before and poured it on Thanksgiving. OMG, it was really enjoyable...

    Sorry for the slow reply. I’m still in. Beer is bottled and awaiting labels.

    Parti-Gyle Session Beer w/ Kveik

    Thanks for the update. Sorry for my late reply. I haven't been able to brew for a while and stopped checking the site as often. Smash is an interesting idea. I don't know how one brings out that milky, caramel, toffee flavor. Maybe a higher OG grain bill? I've got a dried, unopened packet of...

    Parti-Gyle Session Beer w/ Kveik

    Interesting timing. I think I just had my last bottle of this last weekend. At least I can’t find anymore, but I’m hoping to discover a few bottles squirreled away in the basement someday. It turned out to be a very taste beer. I didn’t really get any milky caramel, but that might have to do...

    I'm in California but happy to ship anywhere in the country.

    Maple sap. Cool. What’s the starting gravity of the sap? Did you tap the trees yourself or source the sap? What an interesting idea.

    Wow, the West Coast group needs more participation. I hope more brews happen across this thread and don't just assume all the slots are filled (since it's filled up so fast over the last few years).

    I think I've lost the plot a little. How many open slots are there now which still need to be filled? Does anyone have a current count?

    @fourfarthing, I opened one of you cherry dubbels this afternoon. Really nice job. I think I like yours better than mine. I should have opened mine and yours at the same time to compare but already having one big beer this afternoon (see my earlier post), I thought I should limit myself. But I...

    @anotherbeerplease, I‘m enjoying a second bottle of your fruitcake old ale and thinking about what I’ll do when brewing it for West Coast 2020. I make my own “gourmet fruitcake” every few years, and the aroma of your ale was spot on IMHO. You veered way from the Randy Mosher recipe and did...

    I heard back from @bradccook. Pasting the email below and there was a FedEx shipping slip attached. FROM @bradccook: "Sorry for the extreme tardiness. I had updated Jeff with the same info. Again my sincerest apologies on how late it is. Everyone is getting there beer though. It's all on the...

    For my 2019 Dubbel, I used 6lbs 8oz sour cherries and 8 lbs Trader Joe's dark cherries for a 5 gallon batch. While I liked the perception of the cherry flavor, I was disappointed to lose some of maltiness I was hoping for. If I was to brew it again, I might try adjusting the grain bill for more...

    I just sent @bradccook an email asking what happened. Has anyone else from the West Coast group done that or messaged @bradccook within HomeBrewTalk?

    I was out of town last week. Arrived back at work today to find beers from @gromitdj, @jerbrew, and @fourfarthing (Dubbel swap). No broken bottles. The only thing missing is the Spiced Dunkel Weizenbock, which I guess nobody received. Letting those new arrivals sit in the fridge for a few days...

    I haven't received mine yet, but maybe it's stuck in the mailroom at work. I'm still excitedly waiting on the west coast Carmel Quad, Spiced Dunkel Weizenbock, your Honey Ginger IPA, and the @jerbrew substitute beer. Oh, and the Cherry Dubbel swap with @fourfarthing. Not worried they won't...

    Received these six west coast group beers so far. Enjoyed the old ale tonight. Excellent. Nice balance of the spice, dark fruit, and malt.
